So DH and I have started looking at cars. We always knew that when we had kids we'd upgrade one of our cars to some kind of SUV. So now that I'm 8 weeks pregnant, we've started taking a look at things.

Right now, I feel like the Ford Explorer, GMC Acadia and Chevy Traverse are our front runners (taking into consideration size and price point). DH really would like to have the option of a 3rd row but we both agree that we don't want to sacrifice trunk space just to have the extra row of seats (since we know we'll be driving around with strollers, diaper bags, etc).

Anyone hear drive a Ford Explorer, GMC Acadia or Chevy Traverse? What can you tell me about it? Do you like it and would you recommend it for a new mom? Or does anyone have any recommendations for similar vehicles we may not have thought of?

ETA: I'm also looking at Nissan Rogue, Buick Enclave, Toyota Highlander and Hyundai Santa Fe so if anyone has feedback on those, I'd love it too!
