My 98 Camry is creeping over 210,000 miles now, and I need a new car. I only have one LO, but I am a nanny, and so frequently have another child in my car. The idea of a minivan, with captain's chairs, sounds divine with two toddlers in car seats, but I don't really need that third row. A really spacious backseat would be awesome though.
My budget is $6500-7000 in order to keep my monthly payments manageable. I need a car with good gas mileage (city and highway), which is another thing keeping me away from the minivans. I need over 20 mpg city, but 24+ is preferable. I also want a super reliable, not-super-high mileage car that is not going to break down on me or need a ton of repairs! I apparently am going to be driving on snow/ice in Seattle (this is my first winter here) so something that handles that okay would be preferable as well. Suggestions?
