Thanks guys, I so appreciate it. We're looking used and I don't want to waste anyone's time TRYING out their cars if it's not even a consideration. We are 3 peeps who are almost 6ft (me) or over 6ft (the guys) and will have one in a booster another year and a half (DD) a convertible at least 2.5 years (DD) and infant seat then convertible for 4.5 years (September impending baby.)
I should have stated- we're looking used. We have a 2015 Rogue that has a 3rd row, but with it up, can't fit a stroller or the dog (medium guy). We will have to sell it since we still owe 20K - hoping we can sell it for a little over that.
AWD and towing aren't an issue for us (damn- because I would totally get a camper but DH just isn't into it)
So really, I want a third row that can fit an adult relatively comfortably, and I still want space for my double stroller.
So far the Honda odyssey and the Toyota sienna are winning out (bleh) but I like the suburban too, and I just saw the Acadia the other day. If I was buying new it might be an Acadia - re sticker price and look, but used I don't know how long one would last, vs Honda/Toyota reliability which I feel more comfortable with buying used.
Cass- did you get a used Acadia or buy new? Wondering what the repairs are like etc. I love that Nissan vehicle too.
Nervus- I think a full sized van would be baller. Perhaps as they get older. My husband would kill me but I would enjoy.
IW- have you had adults in the back seat? Can you still fit stuff behind? I like the Honda Pilot but with the 3rd row up it's CRAP cargo space from what I've read in specs.
I may be overthinking it, but we bought the Rogue in 2014 and promptly decided to do IVF, had a baby, felt our car was a BIT small but managed and then wham. So I am really wary of making the wrong choice...
