Our next car...suggestions please

Our lease is up on my car this summer so we have been discussing what kind of car we will get next. Thanks to Dave Ramsey we will not be leasing another car!! We will purchase one...which means we will purchase a used car. We have not ventured out to look at cars but have looked online to see what is available in our price range and what direction we want to go. We have several stipulations. 1) The car has to last a while. We don't plan on buying another car for at least five years. 2) I want to have at least three kids so the car has to be able to grow with us during the next five years. 3) It has to fit in our price range and budget...sorry Dave we will be financing this one for now. We promise to eventually pay cash for one down the road.

So we keep our eyes out for cars we like driving down the road. Jokes are thrown around when we pass minivans. I refuse to drive a minivan...until today. I was thinking about it practically. How easy it would be. How perfect it would be with more than two kids. But my pride just keeps getting in the way. Everything about a minivan seems like the logical choice to make but I just can not see my happy butt behind the wheel of a minivan. But what other choices are out there for a mom with the hopes of three kids??

So my question for you is...

Hey Renee - Amy Aaron here - Minivan's are super cool!!! Every now and then, I would get a minivan rental car while traveling with Oxygen - and they are great! Drives like a car, space of an SUV, sliding doors, I could go on and on. Think of it as your own personal party van. I say, get the minivan!

As one of four kids, I grew up riding in mini-vans! It gives you so much space, and I honestly don't see anything wrong with it. If you think it's the best fit for you guys, I say go for it!

The first time I EVER considered a minivan was when I saw the VW Routan, it's kind of hip. I too want three kids and wrestle with this same dilema. They have to make a cooler minivan at some point.

But I do agree about the mini van! I could never see myself in one either.... But I have noticed as you get older...a car is a car and that is about it. :)
