What is your favorite car/van/SUV for 2+ carseats?

DH wants to trade in the Subaru Tribeca (which I love) for a new car, because of some trouble we're having with the Tribeca. I'd rather just fix the problem, but he's insisting, and well, I wouldn't mind a new car! We got a super deal on the Tribeca, so we should have a nice down payment after we pay off the loan.

We have a Britax Marathon 70 for my 2 yr old RF DD, which I like, but with baby on the way, I was thinking of a Radian, which I hear are more narrow. I'd rather not have to get ANOTHER car for baby #3! I'm not a huge minivan fan, but I'll get one if need be. What is your favorite car/van/SUV for 2+ carseats?

Re: What is your favorite car/van/SUV for 2+ carseats?

We have a 2011 Toyota 4Runner w/two seats, one is a Graco infant seat and the other a Radian -- bought because it was narrow (well, and of course, well rated for safety!). They are both rearfacing right now, and fit just fine. Only thing is the front passenger seat doesn't go ALL the way back of course, that's where the Radian is.

I wish it was a couple of months out because our DD is going to outgrow the infant seat, after which we'll be installing the Recaro Sport that we have. That will be the true test because, that seat takes up some serious real estate!!

I am in love with my Ford Flex. Great gas mileage, and it's super car seat friendly. I recommend one to everybody, whether they have kids or not!

I bought a Dodge Journey last year and I love it! I only have one child, but we did put two radians and a frontier across the seat. It's not huge but they did fit. I also got in a frontier and two chicco keyfits. I have a third row in mine. I keep it folded down so I can haul dogs and groceries. But if we have extra people I can fold it up. I wouldn't want to use the third row full time, but for three kids it's fine and then occasional extras. When my parents are here we put DS in the third row and my mom and I ride in the middle.

This. If I must drive a mini van, the Odyssey is the one. Before that, I super duper pink sparkly heart loved my Pilot.
