    Re: What kind of car do you drive?

    My daily driver is a 1998 Dodge Durango. Color= Red and Rust
    It has about 200,000 miles on it and I'm afraid to bring it to the car wash because chunks of my car will fall off and it will just make the holes bigger. We have a Graco Nautalis behind my seat(driver) and a Graco MyRide65 RF behind the passenger seat.

    My Husband drives a 2002 Buick LeSabre. About 160,000ish miles, it's been in 3 or 4 collisions. Currently without carseats in it. #2 out grew her second seat and the new one we got for #1 was "defective".

    Most of our other cars didn't come with seat belts in the back seat... so kids don't get to ride in our classic cars.

    Re: What kind of car do you drive?

    I drive a white 09 Honda Pilot EXL with 68,000kms.
    Dh drives a black 08 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS with 82,000kms.

    I only have seats in the Pilot right now. Too lazy to put seats in the Lancer.


    We also have our 03 Explorer still, but it needs to be cleaned, listed and sold. Too lazy to do that too. Meh. I think it has 173,000kms.

    We have a brand new (to us) 2010 Grand Caravan which is my primary vehicle now. It has 15 thousand miles.

    Our other vehicle is a 2009 Honda CR-V with 60K miles that will now be DHs primary vehicle.

    Re: What kind of car do you drive?

    I (proudly typing this) have a brand new Honda Pilot! It's dark cherry pearl with all black leather int so I named her CherryCoke and I also call it "my pirate"

    I just traded in my beloved 06 Acura TL which I would have driven until the wheels fell off but there just isn't any room in there for anything other than the three of us. My poor dog hasn't gotten to go anywhere since I had the baby so it was time for a bigger vehicle!

    Just traded in my motorcycle too (07 Suzuki GSX-r)... I'm in mom mode and can't be bothered with such a dangerous hobby (sniff lol I miss her) and also sold my very much beloved play car which I've owned since I turned 18 because it was breaking my heart seeing it rot away in my drive way since I had DD.. no time to play with it my 98 nissan 240sx SE "Greena" I could barely fit a SR22 baseless in there... DD wouldn't have been able to ride in that until she was FF and even then I'd probably have to eat the dash!

    Anywho back to my cherry, I am in love. Never in my life had a brand new car... I watched it unload off the truck, watched them peel the plastic off of it and they took it for a drive, I test drove it and they filled the whole tank up with gas and I drove it off the lot with 10 miles on it!

    So far I have only gotten to play carseats (what DH calls it lol) for a few minutes because we've been so busy but one of these nights after DD is in bed I am going to take all the seats I own and see what fits where

    But on a daily we have DDs new Blvd outboard passenger in 2nd row and third row is stowed.

    DH drives a variety of things, he's always collecting beaters, trading them, building stuff, swapping stuff and never has just *his* car so he never has seats or drives DD anywhere unless we're together in my car or he just borrows mine for a quick trip to store with DD. We don't really share vehicles... mostly because I wouldn't be caught dead in any of the things he's "working on" lol!! Oh the joys of being with a mechanic with way too many mechanical hobbies!

    And here I thought that, on a forum full of safety freaks, I was the only one who rode...?! I gave it up between #2 and #3, and when I moved from California to British Columbia. People here just don't pay attention enough when driving to justify a bike here.

    Re: What kind of car do you drive?

    1994 Honda Accord
    Dh forbids anything else but EFTAs in his car But I did sneak the TFP in there for now. Therefore, right now an EFTA 65 Sandbox is in there for DD1 and TFP rf for DD2.

    1995 Honda Odyssey
    RF RNXTSL for DD2
    FR 85 Maui for DD1

    Spares--still looking for a "car-home"
    MR 65 (Sonata and Deco)
    EFTA 50
    Secure Kid 400 (may have to return--I never installed it and it's just sitting in the box not being used)

    Update:
    Snuck the EFTAs out of DH's car--RF MR outboard/ FF RNXTSL Center

    Odyssey now has the EFTA 65 Sandbox Rfing instead of the RNXTSL.

    Still looking for a home: TFP & EFTA 50. (Returned the SK400) Nice seat but it was just sitting in the box w/ the plastic still on the cup holders)

And I could probably comfortably put true fits outboard. I'd try it but he doesn't like me messing with his car.
    I used to have one of those. AMAZING sedan for car seats. I sure do miss it.

    2009 sienna 8-passenger. I pink sparkly heart my van!

    2010 ford fusion (company vehicle) not so much in love. I hate the slippery upholstery and the contours in the backseat. It's feels SO cramped and not luxurious compared to the sienna!

    Re: What kind of car do you drive?

    Late to the game but as of 2 days ago I drive a 2012 Honda Pilot EXL in Dark Cherry Pearl with black leather. I it.

    I haven't fully decided on our car seat set up but for now I have a SK Monterey in the third row, passenger side, a clek olli 2nd row passenger side and a rfing Myride65 2nd row drivers side.

    I might change things around a bit but for now I am happy with this set up.

    Dh is currently driving a 2009 Ford Fusion. We currently have an old style parkway passenger side, RFing RadianXTSL center and a literider drivers side.
