Or a used car. I'm breaking down and buying a new car, well, a used car but a new car for me. I need advice. What kind of car do you recommend? We're a family of 6 so we need room for at least 7, I'm looking for safety features and good gas millage. What do you recomend and tell me why you recomend it. Thanks!

we have a plymouth grand voyager and fits 7 comfortably- (no kids but we take our dogs with us when we go away and my husband uses it for work) we've used it for trips to the theme parks and everyone likes it- however it's not great on gas but better then an SUV. There are other vans that are similar to this one that have a better rating for safety- check the consumer reports, you can check them at your local library if you can't get it online.

I was thinking a minivan too. That's what I drive now but it's not good in the snow and we get alot of snow where we are.

I would recomend a van we have recently bought 1 because when we are all together there is 7 of us and it really comes in handy also we go camping and on vacations so there is plenty of room
