    Oh trust me my kids don't sit well together now! I had a commodore VZ wagon when I had number 3 and they all fit together but dd2 who was 13 months old would pinch/hit my dd1, it was a nightmare! I put up with it for a year and then traded that car (and my husbands ute) and got the tarago so I could separate them. We weren't in the financial position then to take on a car loan so I didn't have many options etc... Maybe I should just buy myself a little car for myself, no kids allowed!! 😝 lol

    I hate big cars so I vetoed the idea of a 7 seater. We don't regret it at all!

    Great! Another one for me to look at 😃 yeah I'm a fence sitter with 'big' cars... I like the idea of not having a big car but then I just imagine the screaming and fighting in the back seat.... Grrrr lol thank you!

    I didn't mind the Nissan Dualis+2. It's a 7 seater (with 2 fold down seats in the boot) I'm toying with buying one of them next. Because its not as big as most but still comfortable.

    Not sure how different they are to the 5 seater but the back seats were so cramped!! Such a tiny car on the inside. Big boot but everything else but small and cramped. We struggled to fit a compact RF seat in it and me being only 5'5 was uncomfortable sitting in the front with the seat so far forward.
