    Just curious what you mean about the S60 being too small. I have two kids and they both fit fine in a mid-size sedan, even my A4 which has a tiny backseat.

    Yeah, I've always found those statements curious. My G35 still has space for an additional car seat!!![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] If we need to haul stuff, we have the wife's Pathfinder.

    Between the two car seats, and double stroller, double diaper bags there's not much room left for groceries/shopping, let a lone another person. With the CRV, we have room for all of that, and a third person can get in and our far more comfortably. We did it for 1.5 years, so its doable, but the smaller SUV is just much more convenient, and much easier. No one knocking their heads putting in/taking out babies, stroller and everything else (hockey bag) fits so much better.

    Valid points, all. Having two very little kids adds a lot of crap to schlep on a daily basis. The stroller is the killer. My girls were born 23 months apart but both hated being in strollers from a very early age, so we ditched them. The strollers, not the kids.

    '03 Infiniti G35 coupe. When I paid it off, I thought of replacing it with the newer G37, but I prefer the styling of mine.

    same, except the '03 model has the worst sounding brakes in the entire world and the car belongs in the pseudo-luxe category as a result. i wanna upgrade to something else just because of this, but it is paid for and i hardly drive anymore now that i live in the city.

    what's wrong with the brakes on those just curious? is it a general problem with that model in that year? just a cosmetic issue sound or a mechanical problem?

    LOL! Seems you have the AT model with the weak brakes. If not, and you own the MT with Brembos like me, do not, by any means, buy the OEM brake shoes. Go to tirerack.com and if you want an upgrade, get Hawks. If not, get Satisfied, which are cheaper than OEM and 10 times better. You can get Satisfied brand for the AT's too, and they wont squeal like a pig en route to the slaughterhouse.

    '01 Volvo S60 T5 with a few mods. As with any Euro car approaching the 10 year mark, it has had given it's share of headaches, but I've seen and dealt with a lot worse.
