Help my family find a good car!
September 25, 2010 4:10 AM Subscribe
Seeking used car advice! I'm looking to find a used SUV or wagon that can be used to transport lumber and the like occasionally but can also serve to transport the family, including baby, when needed. I've heard the Honda Element is good because the back seats are removable. Any other analogous vehicles? We don't want to spend more than @ 11k if possible, which is why the Element might be out.
Please feel free to also refer to online guides where I might do research. My initial review is unfortunately turning up a lot of paid ads which aren't too helpful.

Other factors we are looking for:
- cruise control
- decent gas mileage if possible
- decent driving in the snow (but this is a 2nd car, so we can just not drive it in the snow if necessary)
I'm in Portland, Maine.
