A Dad’s quest to find the perfect family car

Finding the Perfect Family Car

I’m on a mission to find the perfect family car. What is the perfect family car? I don’t know yet. There are a ton of priorities and desires that we have. There is also the fact that our family is about to grow with the arrival of our third daughter.

We’re urban parents. A minivan may not cut it. It’s definitely not cool enough. An SUV seems irresponsible. Station wagon? Maybe.

While we’ve owned a car in the past, we’ve lived without one for the last two years. This is big. And I’m by no means an expert, but as the Dad with a conscience I want to make sure we make the right decision. It will be a decision based on the safety of our family, the costs of ownership, the cool factor, and quite significantly, our impact on the environment. Ideally we wouldn’t need to buy a car, but we will in the near future. So this blog documents our story.

  1. Hi. I love your blog. We have 2 kids (one is five, the other almost 2). I have a Jetta Wagon and am looking for a new car (it’s 6 years old). I love Volkswagens but am open to options. I don’t want an SUV or Minivan…thinking more along the lines of an entry utility. Any thoughts on which is the most fuel efficient? Sporty/fun to drive? (I drive stick). LMK.
