    Red face Vehicles that seat 3 small children in car seats

    I'm needing to purchase a suitable sized second hand car to cater for a 20 mth old, a set of twins (as at May 09) and storage space to accomondate pram etc. Funds are limited to $10,000, will consider private sales also and installing LPG if necessary (extra). Later models the better and obviously fitting 3 car seats without causing extra dramas is the problem.

    Any suggestions on other vehicle options. Am leaning towards Holden VX/VY series station wagons for space and reliability. Have not found a suitable people mover with enough stroage space and it appears the same with 4X4 (seat space).

    Similar criteria Ford models are know to have brake and transmission (oil cooler) problems. Any advice re: Fords?

    What about equilivent Mitsubishi's. Note: have been strongly recommended/advised; gas is not good on Japanee made vehicles. Any comments?

    Any advice or ideas are greatly appreciated concerning any suitable model car.
