    Small car recommendations please!

    Without going into the backstory - what would you all recommend for a safe, fuel-efficient car that can handle 3 kids without too much hassle? Ideal price point of $5000 or less.

    2 Recaro Prosport covers FFS

    Our Prosport expired and so I don't need these any more! I have Hanna and Blaze cover sets, both in good condition but could use a wash. I expect shipping to be ~$10 each. Message me with interest. Not sure whether or not these would fit on a Performance Sport but it might be worth a try!

    Favorite convertible seat

    It seems like there have been LOTS of new seats out in the past year or so. What is everyone's current favorite? Would that still be your favorite if price was not a factor? Discuss!

    Very interesting article if you have time

    The topic of leaving kids in cars unattended has come up here many times before. This article is about how our moral attitudes toward parenting (e.g. "it is wrong to leave a child unattended in a car") will make us think that something is dangerous even if it is not. Quote from the article to...

    Radian for a newborn in a Dodge minivan

    A friend suddenly got a newborn foster baby and might borrow a Radian from me for him. They have a Dodge minivan and the seats are pretty sloped. I'm concerned that the angle might not be newborn-appropriate, and of course Radians can't use noodles/towels/etc. Can the angle be adjusted with the...

    Puzzling suggestions: 2014 Ford Escape

    Not sure on the vehicle yet. This would be for a FF harnessed almost-5 year old and a RF small one year old. They have a Radian and a Boulevard that can be used (I'm guessing second or third generation for the BV), but don't want the baby in a Radian (and would prefer to not spend that much on a...

    7+ passenger vehicle $6000-ish, good options?

    See my other thread if you have smaller car recs! If we decide to go with a car that can hold all of us, what are some good, cheap options? It would not be used for big trips, so we don't need lots of passenger or cargo space. Thanks!

    Budget-friendly used car, good gas mileage and trunk space

    Our second vehicle gave up the ghost. :( The replacement options are either to get something that will fit all 7 of us, or to get something smaller and just use it when only some of us need transportation. I will probably start a thread about the first option later, but for now I'm investigating...

    Tight 3 across, Radian is expiring

    Once new baby arrives, we need 3 across in the third row of our 2008 Kia Sedona (40/60 split). The trick is getting two seats onto the 60 part of the seat. Right now it's two Radians facing opposite directions, but one expires this summer. Is there another RF seat that would puzzle well with a...

    Rental car says it is "standard elite SUV" similar to Chevy Traverse

    I am not at all an SUV expert. If a rental car company offers a "standard elite SUV" that is similar to a Chevy Traverse, what are some of the other makes/models that we could get? The other (different) SUV categories are: Standard SUV (Ford Edge or similar) Full size SUV (Chevy Tahoe or...

    American Girl magazine deals?

    Maybe a long shot, but does anyone know of any AG magazine deals? Or do you know if they traditionally have sales or coupon codes out around the holidays? A google search isn't turning up anything good and we'd like to get dd a subscription for Christmas. Thanks!

    2002 Taurus/Sable - 1 convertible + 2 boosters

    My friend will be visiting family and will have the use of a 2002 Mercury Sable (corporate twin to Ford Taurus). They have a Sureride for their youngest and highback Turboboosters for the 5 and 7 year olds. What are the chances they'll be able to get 3 across with that combination? I told her...

    newborn in Honda Fit

    Originally I posted this: Now I'm updating because the family is thinking of using a convertible. Does anyone know what (if any) "full size" convertibles will work at a newborn angle in a Honda Fit? They're leaning coccoro, but obviously a larger convertible will last a lot longer if it will...

    REAL ID requirements to travel by air in 2016?

    I just saw this article saying that NYS driver's licenses do not have enough security features to be used for air travel starting sometime in 2016. Apparently the security features were upgraded 2 years ago but still aren't enough. Has anyone in other states seen similar information? I'm...
