View Full Version : 5 or more kids what car?
We currently have a chrysler grand voyager but was wondering what car everyone has with 5 or more kids? Taragos have an extra seat to ours so wondering if we should go for that as I still want a spare seat after new bubs comes for the kids friends for now and eventually we plan on fostering.
Was wondering if theres anything bigger though without going minibus lol :D
I have a Mitsubishi Delica - it's basically a turbo deisel 4wd version of a starwagon. It's a japanese import. I love it!!! I have the eight seater, though you can get them in a seven.
ETA Have a fab day on Saturday!!
thanks ive never even heard of those so will have to look into it hehe :D
We did have a wonderful day too thanks :D
I looooove My Voyager! We have 4 kids so we have a spare seat. If only i could convince my DH to have one more baby LOL :laughing:
My freind is a daycare mum and just bought a 10 seater Mercedes bus from a resort in Nth Qld really cheap. You would have plenty of spare seats then.:D
Last years model Kia Carnival has eight seats.
HI we have five kids with another on the way we have a Chrysler Grand Voyger which is a 7 seater and a new Kia Grand Carnival which is a 8 seater and i love them both.
any preference for the kia?? very interested to hear more opinions if anyone has any moreto share :D
Hi ,MummyCharmzy, i have 9 kids and we have a mitsubishi starwagon an 8 seater one, as well as another station wagon, my DH didn't like the kia carnival, he wanted to get something a little more established,but i think the new updated kia is a little better than the old one.Good luck with your purchase.:wave:
jodie mum of 9.
I used to have a kia carnival (older model one) and I didn't like it. Not enough grunt under the bonnet to get up hills etc, especially carrying so many bottoms.
We have a nissan pathfinder atm and I love it, its a 7 seater and very comfy. We are also looking at upgrading to a toyota prado which is an 8 seater (if I can convince DH to let me have bubba #6 :D ) The VW kombis are also pretty nice looking for a people mover.
Good luck ttc!!! :yelclap: And congratulations on your wedding!!! Valentine
My new Kia has plenty of grunt the new one is a 6 cylider and even with a car full i dont have any touble over taking going up hills.
I would go to the how safe is your car web site just to double check on safety of some of these vehicles. I think the mitsubishi starwagon was voted as one of the worst in a crash test recently. Its a decent size but the safety factor would deter me. The voyagers look great, thats the one they had on the biggest loser show recently. I sat in a few at the last motor show and would suggest that to others too!
