    Default New Car Advice...

    DP and I are talking about having another baby which would mean that we need to upgrade my car to be able to fit 3 car seats in the back.

    We would have 2 safe 'n' sound maxi riders and a convertible car seat.

    I want an SUV but I don't want a 7 seater so we are looking at the Mercedes ML500.

    Does anyone have one of these and can you comfortably fit 3 seats in the back?

    If anyone has any other suggestions please post them here.

    Thanks heaps!!

    Good luck with finding one that will fit 3 seats in the back , we had the same problem, went to a car yard and tried so many different sedans etc and they just wouldnt fit 3 car seats across the back , we have 2 boosters and a baby seat

    we ended up having to buy a 7 seater!

    Thanks mum23girls!!

    I just looked them up and they are quite nice!! They are around the $70,000 mark too so pretty good for what you get.

    I'd never even thought about those so cheers!!

    back about 10/15 years ago

    N & E... the hybrids are about 90K.. although the RX350 are great too. They are having the run out on atm, with a 0% interest free for 4 years (I think it is 4). You aren't in Brissy any more are you? DH works in servicing and nothing goes wrong with them.
