I would probably LIKE to upgrade my vehicle, but it most likely won't happen. Our car seats four back seat passengers, so unless we're having twins (oh please oh please!) we're just gonna keep trucking. I'm not that fond of the idea, but I prefer the tight squeeze of my microvan over the spacious-but-complicated accommodations of a mini-van and the gas-guzzling-ness of an SUV.

We won't need to upgrade for just one. Both cars can fit three across in the back. We won't get a new car til baby #4 comes along, unless of course there are twins or something.

No upgrading here. This is our first baby, and I have a SD who is 10.
I have a 4-door car and my DH has an SUV.

We've got a ford explorer, not the best on gas mileage, but lots of seats, not sure if we will be able to fit 3 across, or if DS#1 is going to have to move to the back, but he is in a booster and able to buckle himself in so it shouldn't be a big deal to move him

We have a mini van, so we don't need to get a new one. I really want to, but we just got both of our vehicles paid off a year ago. I really like not having a car payment, so we will probably wait a few years to buy something new. Well unless dh gets a nice reenlistment bonus in September when he reenlists. If that happens then I will try my hardest to convince dh to let me get something better.

No, we got a Town & Country 2 years ago. There is room for 2 more kids before we'll need to upgrade.

EVER... but when we rented one in August to visit family in AZ.. i was totally like, we need one of these.... i would preferred a larger SUV but with the gas prices of CA.. it's ridiculous

This is number 1, and I have a 2007 corolla so we're good there. Unfortunately DH drives a POS 91 ford escort that I'm not at all comfortable with having a baby in... But I don't think we can afford another car payment

Yes! I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited and there is no way in heck I can fit 3 carseats in there. So we are looking for a 3 row vehicle.

I'm another coupe owner- a 2003 civic with 220,000 miles! We stopped by the lot last weekend- we're planning on getting a Honda Fit! Sooo excited- especially since the AC went out.

I might eventually need a bus, haha, just kidding. I currently have a Lincoln Navigator, and a Cadillac STS. DH said he's upgrading my Navigator to a Cadillac Escalade sometime in the next year. I refuse to drive something bigger, we take 2 cars if we all go out together, and it works out good that way.

We also have a Jeep grand cherokee and we plan to get a new car. DS's car seat is HUGE and won't fit well behind one of our seats when we fit 2 back there. But we've also found the backseat too small for many adults. We've gotten great use out of the car but time for a new one!

My lease expires in May and I will likely be leasing again. I want to upgrade to an SUV, or definitely a car with a large backseat for a RF carseat and my daughter's seat.
