I am looking for a 2nd hand 7 seater car that fits 3 carseats across the middle row(we have a maxi rider, maxi cosi complete air and another seat that I can't think of its name but is quite wide and will not be getting more seats). The third row will only be used when we have extra people so not very often. Our absolute top limit is $18000. Suggestions please?

We have a Kia Rondo 7. Brilliant car! Was a toss up between that and the Territory. The Kia isn't as big as a territory but more spacious inside, it's a hell of a lot easier to maneuver then a territory and is absolutely magic with fuel consumption. To give you an idea on space inside, we had a full middle row and one very back seat being used, and still had room to pack 3 suitcases, pram, porta cot, esky and pretty much everything except the kitchen sink we needed for a week holiday with 2 adults and 4 kids up north. We reckon we will never buy a different car, when the time comes we will just upgrade to a new model Rondo.

We are still tossing up between a honda oddessey and a ford territory - leaning toward the territory more though.

well i only have a 5 seater territory but i truly love it. i also only have 2 kids but regularly have 3 car seats in my car i have a maxi rider ahr, meridian ahr and a mothers choice seat and they fit comfortably. the maxi and meridian are both extra wide i so i think most seats will fit 3 across.
like i said i don't have the 7 seater but i know a few people that do and its great. the boot is massive when u don't have the extra row of seats in and its beautiful to drive in.
good luck trying to decide on a car its always fun lol

Yes DH wants(is dreaming about) a Prado but they are way out of our $$$. We really don't want to go below 2004 model of a car which is what we have now. I like the look of the Rondo but I don't think our 3 car seats will fit across it without it being squashy which is a real shame.
A dont want to drive a van DH wants a tarago, I think they look ugly and I don't want to feel like I am driving a bus (SIL has one).
I like the look of the ford territory or Volvo xc90 (can just fit in our price range). DH doesn't want a territory. The way I see it is I have to drive it so I should get what I want/like but he seems to think he gets the say. We have 4 weeks to bub is here and the rate we are going we won't have a car to drive the 3 children. Thats alright for him he won't be the one stuck at home unable to go anywhere.
