We're planning on getting a small SUV or car or perhaps some sort of cross over, in the near future...
Any reccomendations?
I really want it to be awesome on gas!

Im not brand picky

I love my Chrysler Pacifica. Seats 6 plenty of room with back row down for groceries and stroller, rides like a dream and super comfy for long trips. I was nervous that I would have to get rid of it for a minivan but realized if i put the two bigger kids in the back two seats and the infant in the middle row (there is a console between middle row so you can't walk between rows) that I can easily still get all kids in and out. Plus, I love it that my car came with a 6 dvd changer (I still need to buy the screen as it wasn't needed due to age of my children) Now it will be handy with the bigger two in the back row and will give them something to look at. With that being said, I need to go and check out amazon.com!

Hmm... I LOVED my ford Edge. That being said, it is great for 2 adults and 2 children. With us having another baby, squeezing in a 3rd car seat was going to be a pain. Gas mileage on it is decent, and I liked how it looked!

I love my Honda Pilot! It seats 8 when needed and it also gets relatively good gas mileage for an SUV.

I just got rid of my Subaru Forrester -- LOVED it! AWD. Got 26 MPG city and 28-29 hwy consistently. And it worked great for 2 adults and 2 kids (and a dog). However, it would NOT fit three car seats... so I actually had to trade it in. And since I am going to be watching my niece in addition to having our 3 boys, I ended up with a minivan...

Loooove my Toyota Rav4. We actually get great gas mileage. If you need to do 3 carseats, you have to do pre 2006. If there is no need for that or just need it for two seats, any year works.

I have the Jeep Compass. I like it. It's a small crossover and I would prefer something a little bigger, but this was what was in our budget when we were buying it a few years ago. It works for now.

I'm having my first and just traded from a Kia Optima up to a Nissan Rogue in May. It is a great size and fit the car seat DH & I decided on with room for the dog. Gas Mileage is about 23mpg right now but that's 99% city driving with only +/- 1000 miles.
