    I accidently voted for the wrong thing! So disregard a Yaris vote since I clicked the wrong button.

    I would keep the Yaris. But I’m a little biased because I have a 2007 Yaris (the sedan model). I’m in love with my car. I miss it so much when I drive my other car or my FI’s car so I understand your attachment! The gas mileage is awesome, it’s reliable, and it’s just so darn cute. I don’t think fitting a car seat into it would be a problem.

    Disregrd my yards vote, I clicked too fast. I hate minivans! But that aside, your car gets better mileage, is newer, and you love it. Keep it!

    I didn’t vote… we are getting a Honda Odyssey so I am a little biased.  I LOVE minivans and we love the Odyssey.  Oh and we have 4 kids so we need the room.  I don’t see why you’d drive a minivan when you have no kids.  Plus I thin ksince your hubby will be getting the car he wants, then you shold keep the car you love.  In a few years, like you said, you can trade up and get a bigger car when you do eventually have kids.

    I have a 2009 Yaris as well!! I LOVE it… so I voted trade in the minivan! We’re planning kids in about 2 more years, so I’ll still have the Yaris, and while I know it won’t be as spacious as a minivan, I think it’ll be fine for a carseat. Gotta love the amazing mpgs! That’ll be a huge money saver in the long run!

    I vote you keep the Yaris and he gets a Subaru–and if in 4 years when you have a baby it doesn’t work, then switch cars so he’s driving the Yaris and you have the Subaru!

    Get rid of the aging car first. Also, try and sell it private party. Trade-ins are usually a money waster!
