For one of these:
or should we splurge on one of these:
Here's the rundown:
Whenever we have another baby, our VW Jetta just ain't gonna cut it. Granted, we still have a little while to think about this decision, but I would love your input. We travel a lot and we barely have enough space to pack everything up and leave room for Caleb. So, we are debating on what we should buy. Whatever we buy next, we will be keeping for a lonnng time...that is why we are trying to get something that has plenty of seating and storage. The vans are around $25-$35K. I have heard they are nice because you don't have to worry about your kids slamming the persons car beside you, plus they are more affordable and get better gas mileage...but, I'm still in my early 20's and as vain as it may sound, I just feel too young to own a van! My sister has already vowed to never own one, haha. Do any of you have vans? Do you wish you would have gotten an SUV? What do you like/dislike about your van?
Of course it is more stylish (in my vain opinion). It is $40-50K and gets pretty much the worst gas mileage that you can get. On that note, besides buying a bus, these hold the most people and stuff! I could go thrifting and be able to stick that hutch I have been eyeing right into the back of my vehicle! All 6 of our kids will be able to fit (hahaha)- and we will be able to travel through any snow storm that comes our way (we actually did get stuck in a snow storm this winter and this vehicle would have been a huge help). What do you guys like/dislike about your large SUV? Would you recommend it?
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday. Caleb and I are hitting up two farmers markets in the morning! Hoping to score some fresh strawberries and radishes :)
