Hi just wanted to know what kind of cars people had with their little ones. I have a Hyundai Getz at the moment an am 21 weeks pregnant. Was wondering if anyone else had one and was coping ok using it as a family car? Seems like there's not much room? Thanx

I have no idea about a Getz, sorry! We have a Commodore Sportswagon so heaps of room. With a smaller car I'd be checking how well a rear-facing car seat or capsule fits. We test drove a Holden Cruz but to fit a rear-facing car seat the front passenger seat would have to be fully forward - so no room for my DH!

My Dad has a Getz which I borrow occasionally. Its a bit too small for a family car personally but I have an i20 which is roughly the same as a Getz. I guess as long as it fits my pram and baby seat thats all that matters.

We have a new crv so no space issues there. We hired a Getz in Melbourne though and it was very small. I think that if you are used to small though, you won't perhaps notice as much as if you have had a bigger car? Maybe Must be awesome not to spend a hundred a week to fill 'er up....

I had a Rav4 (the model just before the current shape) with DD as a baby. And it was a PITA!!
The carseat was waay too big to fit in the middle RF. She went behind the passenger, (when DH wasn't at work that was me) I had my seat pushed all the way to the front. She RF'ed for almost 2 years!! So it was a nightmare!!
Once she was FF it was much roomier. But I am very glad we ended up getting rid of it.
A getz is heaps smaller, so not a car I would have but if you can't afford to upgrade it will do.
