To think that we could get 3 DCs in a VW Polo

Old MPV is done for. I'm shocked to see how much a new one would cost. Would it be unreasonable to expect 3 teenagers to travel in the back of of Polo sized car on the 2-3 long trips that we do per year. Most of the time I would only need to transport 2 children at a time or do my short commute. We are good at packing light so I don't think we need a big boot.

If you mean driving to Italy long it's a bit tight.

But no, sounds fine to me.

I used to have a polo. Don't think I ever could have travelled with 3 adults in the back - depends how big your teens are. The middle "seat" is one of those half size ones isn't it, and mine only used to have a lap belt (may be different now?).

Also, do check out the boot. It's tiny. I used to have to put my buggy on the passenger front seat, as it wouldn't fit in the boot.

YANBU about the comfort thing, but what about the weightconfused

When I was at uni and had a mini, it was horrid to drive with 2 in the back. It felt really sluggish and hard to drive.

I realise this was many years back, cars are not so crappy now and probably a vw polo is alot bigger anyway than my tiny little mini<ramblesblush>

If you can't afford a new car, stick with what you've got.
