    In your situation there can be only one answer: The new VW Multivan!

     

     

    To be honest: before I find myself driving a VW Multivan, I'd rather kill myself.  Smiley

    If don't kill myself, my wife would do the job for me. Smiley

     

     Well, in Gnils case it would be a HUGE improvement from a C8, no doubt about that... Smiley but i understand that after having been forced to drive such a 'thing' he would want to look for something more 'sexy' ....

    Isn't it Nissan > Renault ?

    Anyway, Cadillac is pretty good bang for the buck.

    Re: to people with 3 kids / need help for family car

    Nissan is still japanese. Renault made an alliance with Nissan, they don't own it.

    Renault owns 44,3% of Nissan, Nissan owns 15% of Renault.

    Nissan is NOT french and it is still a japanese company.

    Renault pulls the strings, the current Renault CEO was Nissan CEO...

    The current Renault CEO is Nissan CEO. I think you're mixing up some things. Smiley

    Renault Nissan has one CEO, Mr. Ghosn, a Brazilian of lebanese descent.

    Two separate companies under one roof, Mr. Ghosn pulls the strings in both companies. Smiley

    This is a pretty unique constellation in the automobile business.

    Re: to people with 3 kids / need help for family car

    Mr. Ghosn was Nissan CEO before he became Renault CEO. He made quite an impression in Japan, they called him "Le Cost Killer".


    Re: to people with 3 kids / need help for family car

    So he went from Nissan CEO to Nissan and Renault CEO

    No, I don't. Nissan is a japanese company.  Smiley

    Is it french because it has a brazilian lebanese born CEO  ?

    Is it french because it has an alliance with french Renault ?

    Nissan doesn't produce a single car in France.

    If you meant it as a joke or some sort of sarcasm, I may understand though. Smiley

    Nissan was in trouble when Renault bought it and send Ghosn. He went with a team of Renault people and saved Nissan.

    Re: to people with 3 kids / need help for family car

    Why is the Odyssey so ugly in the US?  This is what it looks like here.  Less practical though clearly.


    Re: to people with 3 kids / need help for family car

    My wife has now said very clearly that she refuses to have another '' mother's '' car !

    She want to look good in what she drives  and not  look like she is just a  kid's transporter

    So nothing that looks useful and practical  ( vans, monospace are all out )

    That leaves me with a SUV or a nice station wagon . But which one will fit comfortably 3 kids in the back , luggage to go on skiing trips in the trunk and not be too big for daily usage in the city ?  ( GL, Q7 are too big )

    Re: to people with 3 kids / need help for family car

    A 7 seater is the way to go then and if GL and Q7 are too big, then the next size down SUV in width is the Q5, but fitting 3 kids with their chairs in the back of it would be a challenge, and a stationwagen even less since they are even narrower than Q5. Maybe if you buy three new chairs especialy selected because they are narrow

    I used google and found this, a guy says he fits 3 britax marathon car seats in the rear of an Audi All-Road... if thats the case they they should fit on the Q5.

    Yes... a 7 seater is needed. I must try it out in a Q5, see if I can fit the seats.

    That info is positive, thanks Smiley

    The Discovery would also work but it weights 2.7 t !!!! Smiley And is really orientated to off road which I would hardly ever do . A waist of it's purpose and I loss in nice driving feelings

    I agree, I don't think your wife will like how the Discovery drives either, heavy and sluggish, soft sprung, poor steering.

    I'm due to receive the Q5 for my wife in a month, I could try and see if three child chairs will fit back there and get back to you if you haven't already checked that by then yourself Smiley

    Re: to people with 3 kids / need help for family car

    Check the X5, it is smaller than the Q7, has 7 seats albeit the rear ones are tiny.

    I do not like it either, but it is practical and sensible... The Audis and Beamers, and such, are far smaller, far less practical and far more expensive (2x).
