Parent's Poll: What Do You Drive?

By February 26, 2013

minivan twins

Multiples=minivan, right? Once you have twins or more, you've got to trade in that sporty sedan for a mom-mobile. Well, not exactly. There are lots of auto options for families with multiples. As long as your vehicle can accommodate car seats, you can make it work. When my twins were babies, we did just fine with a four-door Toyota Camry.

I held out until they were four, then finally relented and parked a minivan in my driveway. I loved the family-friendly features of the minivan. There was plenty of room (even for the oversized double stroller), and a movie player to keep the twins occupied. But I also didn't hesitate to trade it in for a small SUV once our carseat days were over. With tweens and teens, the most important feature is a third back seat, ensuring that there's plenty of room for extra friends and all their gear. I also wanted a vehicle with reassuring safety standards and luxury accessories that make life easier.

Take the poll to show your car character and then leave a comment to explain your choice.
