You sound very similar to me Marsie...

We had 3 vehicles too and it was getting silly.

I had a 6.1 litre v8 SRT Jeep that I tuned and modded and worked out of. We loved that thing but with 4 children and 3 dogs the wife had to drive a MPV as her daily which was a bit inpractical.

3 cars was becoming stupid to run so I reluctantly sold the Jeep and I now have a 6 seat double cab Custom which is big enough for my work and also allows us to go away with 6 bikes all the luggage we could ever want a canoe etc etc

We now have the mini as my wife’s daily which she absolutely loves and to be honest so do I.

Our new countryman is being collected a week today.

Our 2 boys rarely come out with us daily or at weekends but we still holiday as a family with bikes . I can’t tell you how good the Ford is at swallowing everything. I have a pop up roof rack but haven’t even had to use it!

It has allowed us to run 2 vehicles, we love the Mini, my wife is happy, I’m happy.... it’s taken years to get our vehicles right but finally I think we are there.

I will be adding the manic map to the CM and it’s switchable so when I drive it will be circa 250... she never gets out of green mode!

I can thoroughly recommend the CM as a family daily.... such a rewarding drive compared to the hundreds of MPV’s out there... believe me! I think we have tried most of them over the years.
