What car do you transport your furbabies in?

This is partly my curiosity, but also because I'm looking into getting a new car in the near future. What car do you use to transport your pups around? Right now we use my boyfriends Acura which is a sedan (they go in the back seat)....in a couple months once they're full grown they're not going to fit back there anymore...and trying to get their crates in there is another story Never thought I'd be buying a car basically for my pups

Oh yes! We have sedans. I want to trade my sedan in for a small SUV. I've been looking at the RAV-4 and the Xterra.

I have a 2010 Jeep Liberty. I had to upgrade from a Wrangler for the same reason.... Diesel no longer fit! So far, all around, it's been a great decision!

We have a Subaru Forester. More than enough space for two dogs! My girls are in the back.

I have a Chrysler town and country mini wagon it gets 23-25 mpg on highway and it will fit at least 4 large crates easily. I love it all but it's price but you can't take it with you.

We just got a subaru outback in August for this very reason. Glad we're not the only ones The crate fits nicely in the back, and when it's time for furbaby number 2, two crates would fit with the seats folded all the way down, or one in the crate and one in a harness on the back seat. Ours is the manual transmission and we get close to 30 mpg.

I would have gotten teh outback but it was still the old body style in 2009 when I bought my forester and it didn't change until 2010 and I hated the old outbacks but love the new ones...
