Sprog no 3 is on the way. I definitely cannot fit 3 child / booster seats alongside each other in the back of my Accord, so it looks like it is time for a change.
Could I ask what other people are using for similar duties? Budget £7k for something 5-7 years old. Petrol / diesel not that important.
Ideas so far:
Honda FRV - now out of production so holding value a bit too well. Diesel ones mileagy but I have good experiences of this engine / floorpan combination. Don't know if it'll take 3 seats across the back but there is the centre front seat too.
Mazda 5 - would only have a petrol one of these due to diesel engine failure horror stories. I'm thinking one of these might be my best bet at this age but am interested to hear experiences. Also, how much luggage space is there when the seats are set up in the 2 + 2 + 1 configuration?
Vauxhall Zafira - cheapest to buy newer / lower miles but I do hear of diesel engine bother and also rust and electrical gremlins.
Haven't considered French MPVs or Multipla, but prepared to listen to stories on unexpectedly good long term reliability.
What does the hive mind reckon?
