    3 across in car - what would you recommend?

    After eliminating several vehicles that just won't work, we are having a hard time finding one that will.

    I currently have 2 kids.
    My daughter is almost 3, forward facing and my son is 10 months and I'd like to keep him rear facing as long as possible. I'll be getting new car seats for this vehicle.

    We would like a car that will fit three car seats. That way if we are lucky enough to get and stay pregnant a third time, we will not outgrow the vehicle. Or if the kids want a friend etc, we will have the room.

    This vehicle is mostly for me to commute to work. It will be our second car. We have a 2005 Grand Caravan that we use for everyday driving.

    Any recommendations?

    Our budget is about $15000 and we want it to have less than 80000km/50000 miles.

    Being able to fit a stroller in the trunk would be nice too but is not necessary since my son would rather be in a carrier and my daughter HATES strollers. :-)
