(Also, testing the crosspost feature from DW to LJ. Hopefully it works.)

So I've done the math and figured out that we can probably afford a sticker-price of about $12K. That's the number I came up with, assuming a 5-year financing plan, 6% interest, and the amounts we can/are willing to spend for down payment and monthlies.

This is what we want:

* decent fuel efficiency

* plenty of space for the assorted babygear we travel with

* something big enough that my husband (who is 6'7") can drive comfortably (note, he fits behind the wheel of our Outback sedan, but is fairly cramped)

Anyone have any suggestions what we should look for?
