If you have a car you love, I'd love to hear what it is and why you love it! Here's what we are looking for:
We'd love to get better has mileage. The car we gave back last night (not repossessed, we were paying the payments for our friends and it wasn't working well) was a big SUV so got horrible gas mileage. So we'd like something that gets decent mileage.
We do plan on having another baby in about 18 months so one that can fit two rear facing carseats Ok.
We are really looking for a 5 seater, we only used the 7 seats in the SUV a couple of times.
Something low to the ground. It killed my wrists getting Carter in and out and I'm short so it was difficult to discreetly get in the SUV in a skirt!
We do have a dog and in about 5 more years will need a vehicle that can cart kids and dog around but that's not really what we are looking for now.
We have a 1998 Plymouth breeze that we've had for almost 6 years that we are keeping for now.
My parents have a jeep liberty and I love it. I have horrible depth perception and hate big bulky cars but the liberty is roomy inside and is easy to drive around. The gas mileage on it isn't too bad either compared to other jeeps and SUVs.
I have the Hyundi Elantra, it's great on gas, fits 2 car seats, 3 is possible but very tight, I'm glad my 8 year old doesn't need a seat anymore. I've had it for 5 years and it's been a great car for me.
I only have one complaint. The headlights seem to burn out quickly (I swear I'm changing one or the other every 6 months), and they are a real pain in the tush to get to and change. I've actually resorted to having them changed when I take it in for oil changes now since it's only $9 extra.
I have a Kia Sedona mini van. prior to that I had a Kia Sportage. I have loved both cars, but you couldn't beat the Sportage for gas mileage and it was big enough for two kids and a car seat in the back.
