We need a new car ...

Now that the doctor has told us we've got a good chance of keeping both babies, we have to seriously think about getting a new car. Sadly, our little two door, four seater escort is not going to cut it for a family of five. Also, no offense to those of you who love (or own) vans, but we hate them so here is the shortlist of 2 (i said it was a short list) vehicles we're considering:
1. A Chrysler Pacifica - It's a six or seven seater depending on the model, but it looks cool or at least very un-van like.
2. A Dodge Journey - Yeah, it's a wagon, but we like wagons! It's also a seven seater and has all of thos crazy storage features that Dodge seem to like to cram into their vehicles.

I don't know how I feel about either of those cars. My in-laws have had awful luck with their Dodge van and I've heard terrible things about them. And Joe's parents just tried to buy a Pacifica and he told them "you'll have fun fixing it all the time". But maybe the newer ones are better.

We are on our 5th Nissan and we've loved every one of them - they're so reliable and cheaper than a Toyota.

Sara likes Pacificas, but I think they look like vans without the sliding doors. So, I vote for the dodge. Unfortunately I don't have any other helpful info.

I totally agree with you on the Pacificas looking very "un-van" like, but as Simon says he thinks otherwise! I vote Pacifica!

Too bad you hate vans or you could "rent" ours from us while we're in China :) Are you still planning to come out here this summer? We'd love to see you!
