@4deep - would definitely love to see pics!! I have a RAV4 (which we purchased 2 days before I found out I was pregnant with our first), but am currently expecting our 3rd, so we will need a new car for sure. I am a Toyota fan, so it's looking like the Highlander or Sienna. I love the idea of the Highlander with the captains chairs, but am nervous about cargo space with the 3rd row. Can you fit strollers?
@kmalls and @eagregg we bought the traverse 1LT with captain chairs last night and I loooove it! Thanks ladies, you were totally on point. We got a ton of bang for our buck and the 2018s look sleek AF
@4deep oh my thank you so much for all the pics - will definitely have to show DH!! Looks way more spacious than I anticipated. You fit all that in the trunk w the 3rd row up?? Can't you also fold down half of the 3rd row if needed too?
I’m slightly panicky- DH and I got new cars in 2013. He chose a stupid Honda Civic and I got a Honda CR-V. Now that we are expecting twins on top of our 1.5 year old (3 rear facing car seats), we need to replace our cars. That’s just way too tight and I don’t want to have to deal with figuring out 3 car seats in one row. Obviously we can’t afford two car payments unless DH gets an awesome raise next year, so we plan to just replace one. The thought we are having is replace my car and save money keeping DH’s tiny car, and we will just have to drive only the one bigger car if we have to drive all 3 somewhere. Would you get a minivan or something like the Chevy Traverse? I’m thinking minivan and then when DH replaces his car he gets the Traverse... so many things to think about

We are going car shopping Monday... I read a post in this thread (now I can’t find who said it )about Subaru’s being bad in the snow... that’s the reason I wanted a Subaru... I live in northern Illinois and really want something that handles great in snow and ice... I’m car clueless and open to suggestions....
@flockofmoosen3 it may have been yours! Sliding all over the place during a snow storm...? My DH convinced me that a lot of that is people thinking they are invincible because of AWD and driving like idiots. We bought one yesterday actually. A crosstrek. It has brand new all season tires (11 miles put on them so far). Our plan is to stick with the all seasons this year and see how I do on those, and next year get winter tires if we need to.
