I have three kids under 5 and we all fit inside the grand vitara. My wife and I always giggles when we see couple getting the minivan for ONE kid when in reality you spend most of the time driving it alone. Bottom line do buy whatever you want but you do not NEED a minivan.Just wait until you see how much space all the baby iron takes up, not to mention a future baby. Bottom line, she needs a minivan. Whether you or she want to be seen in a minivan, that is the question. But truly they are the king of space utilization.
I didnt see see anyone say they needed one. The #1 reason all the former SUV driving parents around me got one. Was ease of loading and unloading kids or kid. The #1 reason we like our Sequoia is the huge 2nd row doors, makes loading kids easy, even to the rarely used 3rd row.I have three kids under 5 and we all fit inside the grand vitara.

Montero Sport, really nothing even comes close for the price. You should be able to easily find a low mileage limited or 3.5XS (maybe even mine...) for that price.Found out I'm gonna be a father come december. Want to start looking for the girl a cheaper suv but still something I can drive. Ive seen several 04 ish volvo xc90s and volkswagen toureg s in my price range. Im a fairly good mechanic and i prefer not having a large car payment so im sure i can maintain them well past what they have on them already. Question is what to get and why. Any thoughts. Needs to be 4x4 or AWD at minimum. Am I missing any 5 grand ish Suvs that are good soft roaders that she would like.
Tons of info in the Mitsubishi section, just as solid as the 100 series LC but 1/3 the price, and hands down a superior ride to the WJ. But the Sport version is not very roomy or able as the full size version.im not opposed to the montero. I really dont know anything about them tho. is there a guide or what to look for somewhere
@pirate mcgee is yours listed somewhere?
