With the baby on the way we are hoping to get a used SUV with low milage, does anyone recomend any that will have a lot of room and that will be doggy friendly?

Thanks ;)

I know they are ugly, but a couple of my kennel buddies sport this SUV for both conviences you're looking for. All of the seats fold up, no carpet (you can litterally hose that sucker out), and when the baby comes it's comfortable enough to navigate a car seat in and out of without giving yourself back spasms lmbo.

Thanks for the feedback I dont mind the look of the car but I don't think I can fit groceries and a baby seat in the car at the same time. I need a SUV I can fit Bernie in the back the baby in the backseat and peanut in the front lol

I have two kids and Ecko. I bought the Hyundai Tucson. It's a smaller SUV, but the back is plastic and can be brushed out whenever we make beach runs. I originally wanted the Element, but it was out of my price range.

Shoot, I promise you, this sucker can do it all! It's definitely worth going and checking out IMO, if you haven't had the opportunity to be hands on with one... I honestly like the Tahoe the best out of all of the SUVs out there... the only draw back with so many dogs is the carpet... You could rhino line a tahoe!

I will look at them to see what you mean :) plus a 4 cylinder has better mileage.

I have a Vibe, and it's not an SUV but it has the plastic like the Honda Element and is very versatile. They've been discontinued but the used ones sell at good prices. I love my Vibe - I can haul 8 foot lumber in it! LOL You should see the looks I get in the Home Depot parking lot. It's like magic!

Take a look at the Toyota 4Runner or Honda Pilot, they both have a lot more cargo room than they appear to have from the outside. Just skip the third row seat option.
Thanks for the tip I will add those to the list as well :)

Leave spending less than $100? LOL! Try going there every day... I've never actually worked it out, but I may spend more than I make. :hammer: I can't even shop at a regular grocery store. There buggies feel tiny - like they were made by Fisher-Price or something.
