    Help me pick a "new" car

    DH wants to trade in his Expedition and Saturn for a new car to drive to work. The Expedition is horrible on gas mileage and the Saturn has no a/c (in Las Vegas). He wants something with good gas mileage and decent safety ratings, 10 years old or less, for about $5-6K. I want it to have shoulder belts in all 3 rear positions and at least 2 headrests, and be 3 across friendly. We have lots of options for seats but will need to install often because seats will depend on which kids he will have. Any ideas or cars that you like?
