My wife has a Terrain currently, but with a second kid with all the crap like diaper bag and stroller.. its pretty packed.
We have been thinking about waiting a bit then looking into the newest Tesla coming out, as my wife is starting to do lots more driving. At her work, the parking will be right at the front door, free, and free charging station if she drives an electric car.
They are opening a Tesla dealership near us in 2014, and we will be waiting a year or two then start thinking seriously about it. Seats 7 with 3rd row seating that comes out. It will cost LOTS more than what we paid for our Terrain, but when you start to add up all the costs of maintenance and fuel.. after a number of years it starts to make sense. Also the free parking and charging at my wifes work is making us start to think about it.
