Well, I have a 13 year old still at home who is heavily into baseball, I haul kids as well as bags of their equipment (my son is a catcher) to and from games all season long and in the summers.

I live in a rural setting, not too far from a larger city, but our area is growing now that Toyota has put down roots. I like to buy flowers and have been known to figure out how to get a chair or porch furniture into vehicles.

I won't need to haul anything since dh has a truck he can pull the boat with. Unless we need to take our pop up camper, but it is very light.

My son is on the coast and when I go down there, I usually take a lot of food and cases of water and gatorade with me and have easily filled up my mom's suburbon.

When dh and I go on trips, he likes to have room enough to put the front passenger seat down and take a nap, leaving me to fend for myself. We take at least three suitcases with us and a couple carryons and my laptop. I also keep a cooler full of drinks and knick knacks to eat on so I don't nickle and dime myself to death at convience stores along our route.

And I have a large Lab who loves to go places with us and weighs 115 lbs.

Usually when we go on vacation, we take extra kids with us. A couple years ago, we went to a favorite water park and took my mom's suburbon; and our truck. We had two 11 year olds, three teens and my dh and I and our luggage.

Since the oldest has moved out, we will usually have two kids as I won't let the youngest take more than one friend on vacation.

So appx 4 people and luggage for vacations.

I really like the heaviness of my mom's suburbon, but yes the gas kills me. The last trip to the coast, appx 6 hours of driving cost me 185.00 there and back, and that is a heck of a lot of gas money! So, I don't want anything too light, but maybe in between a light suv and the heavy ones. if that makes sense

Hope this helps.
If you want a car with a lot of room...

I couldn't vote in the poll since I have a convertible but....I would go with a Ford Edge...they look really cool and don't use as much as gas as the larger SUV's.

I'll take none of the above. The price of gas is guaranteed to go up. I'm holding out for an electric car. No oil, no coolant, no gas, no exhaust system, brakes last almost forever, much more reliable, much lower total cost of ownership. This may be here next year: Mitsubishi looks ahead with an electric i - Autoblog What a tragedy that GM & Toyota sabotaged the electric cars they did produce and set us back a decade.

Well, gas shot up and came down.

And I still have my 2005 Chev Silverado Diesel P/U, 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Limited with the V-8 engine, 96 Isuzu Rodeo with the V-6 (gets the same mileage as the Jeep, go figure) and rebuilt 73 International Harvester Scout II with the 304 V-8.

And now the wife wants an Escalade. I asked her why she wants a souped up Tahoe?

Point is, I couldn't give a rats behind what the gas prices are or what is more politically correct to drive, I will drive what I damn please.
