My life as journaled

Because I'm boring like that

Guess we're getting an SUV

I installed the new carseat today. It just BARELY fits behind the passenger seat in our sedan. And then the front passenger's knees hit the glove compartment. And this is one of the shorter, cheaper carseats.

Obviously, once you have kids, it is only possible to get good gas mileage OR leg-room, but not both.

(We've been discussing getting a new car for 6 months, but figured we would hold off until we knew whether we wanted to get a new commuter car for nightskyre, or a bigger "family" car.)

I love my Saturn Vue...it's got legroom, it's big on the inside, small on the outside, great leg room, and the gas mileage is pretty decent...I average about 22 a tank with a mix of highway and city mileage. It's also got a safety rating that's really good. Oh, and mine is fully loaded with heated seats, a sunroof, 6 disc CD changer, satellite radio, all the goodies!

Just my $2!

Thanks for the recommendation! We'll see if we can test-drive a 2006 Vue (don't like the styling pre-2005).
