    Thinking about a Suburban

    DH is thinking of getting a Surburban. It would replace our Prius (yeah, big huge difference there!)
    Reason being dh's commute is super short now so we don't care as much if we have a gas guzzler and it would be nice to have another vehicle that could fit all 4 kids and still have cargo room. Also something good for hauling stuff from Home Depot and such would be nice.

    What do we need to know about shopping for a Suburban? We are thinking of getting an oldish one, maybe 2005-2007 MY, for example. I assume they are pretty good for car seats and boosters but I don't really now. How are they with headrests and lap/shoulder belts and latch/tether anchor locations?
    Our kids are 8 3/4 years (NBB), 7 years (HBB or NBB), 4 years (FF harnessed), and 1 month.
    Ann, mom to 3 big brothers and a baby girl:
    DS1 - Aug 2006, 80 lb, 56", incognitos
    DS2 - May 2008, 77 lb, 51.5", Vivo or NBB
    DS3 - June 2011, 46 lb, 43", FF in FR85 or booster training
    DD - May 2015, 19 lb, 29", ) Snugride 30
