Husband highly recommends any ford… But I married into a ford family. We are due to have baby #1 by the end of the month and currently have a 12 year old 250,000 mile ford Taurus, a 10 year old 150,000 ford truck and a 9 year old 100,000 mile ford focus. All have had no major issues. We are looking to get rid of the 2 older and get an SUV that will tow our giant/heavy boat… Otherwise we would keep them all until they die.

We just purchased a MB GLK mini SUV as our new family car, BUT I had a ford explorer for years and loved it!

2011 Chevy Equinox and love it, though if I were doing 3 under 3, I would probably upgrade to the Traverse and get the 3rd row.

I have a three year old and a 11 month old. I drive a 2007 Honda Pilot. We got it because we researched and found out it was rated one of the safest SUV’s. The crash test ratings were all 5 stars, and it is great on gas. Plus Hondas are known to last for a very long time. You could definitely find a good used one for under 20,000.

@newlynesting:  We currently have a Ford Escape (wanted an Equinox but couldn’t match the deal witch the Escape) with 1 in a convertible & 1 in a backless booster. It will fit a 3rd (small convertible or infant w/o a base) but its a tight fit. We might have 3 before we can upgrade but the plan is to get the Traverse. I’ve heard only good things about it. Roomy on the inside but still not huge like a Tahoe or Suburban on the outside & I believe its been the top rated for its class for a couple years now. Only questionable component, if I remember correctly, is that it only has outboard LATCH for the back seats BUT this most carseats don’t allow to use the middle latch in 5 seaters anyways bc they’re spaced far apart… Either way it’s easy to get around when you have 5 seat positions to choose from! I seriously can’t wait till we can upgrade!

ETA: The only issue was that not all the 3rd ros seats have anchors & it does not have the LATCH system at all. Many techs will tell you that they don’t always prefer LATCH anyways b/c the weigh limits on them…. If you carseat is 20lb & your child is 40+lb, then you can’t use LATCH anyways. For me, since not all my children will be in a ff convertible/high back booster at the same time I’m okay with this AND I wouldn’t want all of my children in the back bench seat anyways.

Here is the video review from baby gizmo!
