My Dilema... I Need YOUR Advice!

So... it's that time.  Time for a new car.  But my problem is I am just not able to make a decision about the best car for our family.  I drive a GMC Yukon.  I've had it for years and without a doubt it has been reliable to a T (all 125,000 miles!).  The only reason I am hesitant to buy another one is gas mileage, I just don't know if I can handle paying almost $100/tank to fill-up if gas prices spike again.  I love my husband dearly... but I'm just not sure he'll love me if our gas bill goes back to $400/month for just that one vehicle... (kidding... kinda)

So here's my dilemma and I figured I'd ask all your help to give me advice!  Tell me what you drive, do you love it?  Hate it? Or what do you WISH you drove and why?

I LOVE having the third row seat... so I'm leaning pretty heavily towards getting the Hybrid Chevy Tahoe (I love the idea of driving a Hybrid!).  I'm trying to balance out price, fuel efficiency, seating capacity and style.  Buying a hybrid will help with the gas mileage and soothe the guilt of the tree hugger in me...

Help me out guys!  What's your advice?

I really like the Tahoe's! If I could afford one & didnt have to drive 50 miled to & from work, I'd so buy one haha.

I dont have any kiddo yet so I drive a Nissan Altima. I've had several cars but this is by far my favorite! Good luck car shopping :)

Yeah... I've been on the fence about it forever. I had (before 2 kids) the smaller SUV... but now with the two growing boys I really need that third row. When I figured out that the Hybrid Tahoe/Yukons get better MPG than the small SUV's... that was when I became indecisive! :(

I drive a chrysler pacifica great gas milage 25 in town and three rows hard to beat, for more of an SUV the Aspen is also really nice and good gas milage. Good luck I love my car the mileage and size r a great combo

we have a mitsubishi outlander. it has a third row seat that folds down. we usually have it down but on trips with extra kids we just put up the extra row and we are good. the gas is good on it, I had a small car before and we get the same if not better gas mileage for it. (with a hybrid keep in mind the the type of battery)we like our car...it is big inside but is still small on the outside....Quote from the kids...
