Since finding out we are expecting a third child, and knowing we will have three kids under the age of 5, my husband and I have had many conversations about what vehicle would be most suitable for…our family. I have always been an SUV kind of girl. Between Jeep Cherokees, GMC Trailblazers, Nissan Muranos, and, most recently, a Nissan Pathfinder, I like the sporty, "cooler" vehicle look.
