No- she's only 2-1/2. Not too big.
I agree- I really don't need all that much room on a day to day basis. But on the weekends I'd like to have room for 3 or 4 hang gliding buddies, all their gear, and gliders on the roof. (will need to build a rack off the front).
I wouldn't mind a smaller SUV, but none of them ('cept the Liberty) are off road capable, and few have decent styling or interiors with luxo' options. (got any suggestions?) Plus, their fuel economy isn't much better. (the Hyundai Tucson is cute, but rated 19/24 methinks). The new Rav4 I thought had a chance, but it just doesn't do it for me. (interior styling and options are limited...even on the limited) The RX350 is nice, but way over $40K and not dealing- plus I'm not sure about it's off road capability, or even taking that piece of jewlery into the rough.
I'm ready to plink down a chunk of change and it would be fun to have seat heaters, homelink, seat memories, radio controls on the steering wheel, dual climate control, Nav (w/ backup camera!!), etc. Granted, I don't really NEED any of these things (does anybody?)- but what the heck. A car is a cool toy and I might as well get a toy with bells AND whistles. I haven't yet found a smaller 4WD vehicle with the goods. But I'm open to suggestions. I thought I wanted the DVD, but then realized that I'd rather spend my commuting time talking to my daughter, than have her watching the Wiggles. We can get a portable DVD for long trips.
