I have come to the conclusion that you can't have a regular old car when hauling around toddler twins. And this is in addition to my job, which in fundraising and sales. So, let's add a quite few boxes of stuff in the trunk. So, then add two toddlers, two gigantic car seats, a big diaper bag, stroller, work stuff, and I am lucky I can get in the car.
This leads me to the fact that I simply MUST have more room. However, it also must get really good mileage (I put 30000-40000 a year on my car with work traveling). I also don't want to spend a ton of money, because I do put so many miles on it that it doesn't help the resale value at all.
Here is what I am considering so far. I really like the mini-SUVs or crossovers. They are much more roomy (not SUV roomy, but WAY better than my Altima), and get decent mileage. If you have any comments or own one, let me know! Or, if you have any other suggestions, I'm all ears!
The Jeep Patriot and Jeep Compass
Probably my least favorite as far as looks go - but the mileage is superb, and the price is decent
The Honda CRV
Of course, this one is probably my best bet. Good mileage, pretty, great reviews. But pretty pricey, I know, and I do adore Hondas.
I keep coming back to this one. It just seems like a good average car. Good mileage, looks ok, and the price is ok. Everything is just OK with this car.
Hmmm, so I guess I am officially looking. And honestly, this sucks.
Ya know what else sucks? Not being at the top of this list! PLEASE vote! It just takes 2 clicks!!
