I know some other people were talking about minivans, and it has me thinking what we'd like to upgrade to in the next couple of years. Right now we just have sedans, which probably won't fit three car seats across the back. Our DD will be 5 and a half years older than DS so in just a few years the booster seats won't be an issue... I just want space in the car that will ACTUALLY fit 5 people, because right now, at best, I could get 2 kids in the back (being mine) and another adult in the front. My need for a larger car stems from the fact that your child essentially cannot have friends over (or at least you can't take them anywhere) with the current safety laws/regulations. I can't fit 3 car seats across the back, and Washington State has some of the highest requirements (booster from 40lbs until 8 years old or 4'9", and they cannot sit in front passenger seat until 13 "when practical"). With only 2 kids, I don't really care about having a third row or having that as much vehicle as a minivan provides, however, the cargo capacity is appealing, and something with 4 wheel drive would be nice, too.
