I wouldn't mind a smaller car, but I try to think of DS, who is 9 and growing, having to be crammed into the back. He will be stuck riding in the back in whatever vehicle we purchase until he has own car, (hopefully with the reliable car I'm aiming to buy)
It's actually the Nissan Altima, not the Maxima I'm looking at. The Altima is more in my price range.
Car/better gas mileage vs SUV/higher up?
cough cough * I think I need to leave work, not feeling well...aka going for some test drives
