Six seater endangered species
The thing is, 90% of the time he's just driving one or two people, so it seems silly for him to spend the money (both up front and on gas) to get a minivan or giant SUV. Until now, he's pretty much exclusively driven small/medium sedans (Corollas, Camrys, Passats, etc.).
Yet it's really hard to find anything other than a minivan or giant SUV that reasonably seats six. Most wagons and small SUVs have third rows that aren't safe for a car seat, and aren't big enough for an adult. And it's nearly impossible to find a decent sedan with a three-passenger front bench.
So far the only six-seater sedans I've found are big, bland American sedans: the Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis, the Impala, and the Buick Lucerne and Lacrosse.
Is there anything else out there? I'm thinking we we should just ride in two cars on those occasions when we visit, or maybe rent a minivan if we really want to all ride together.
Any other ideas?
