So we have a family of 6. I also do inhome daycare. Therefore we need a rather large vehicle to haul the children to and from school as well as fit us all safely and comfortably. We were using a car for awhile there since my oldest usually rode the bus to and from school. Now we have the credit to purchase a newer vehicle, and my fiance says a van and I want an SUV! He says no because they're gas hogs, and run rather expensive. But I don't want to be a soccer mom, no offense to anyone please! I just have never really liked vans....I mean some are cute but if I have any say so I want an SUV. Preferrably a Tahoe, or Suburban. My mom and stepdad, whom is a mechanic tell us a van is going to be the better pick, but my dad says that an SUV is going to be longer lasting and sportier looking. Anyone have any say so in this? Which one do you prefer?!
