the Jeep is too small.

For local driving with all of us including the dogs the Grand Cherokee did okay. It was not always comfortable for the longer trips but it worked. Now that we add a wheel chair to the mix it is a tight fit with the 3 of us and when we shop it gets worse. Throwing in the dogs now is not even an option. A simple 4 hour drive is also not going to be a happy time for us ether. Considering children are also being planned for (not expecting yet) it needs to be big enough to accommodate them as well. The planning for this is coming. I have a list of things that need to be met and then also a list of wants that the women want as well.
As my good girl is the one who the new vehicle needs to be planned around because of the wheelchair, the independent woman will have input but a lot of her wants are not going to have to be able to be included. Number 1 want of hers is easy to park. I understand the want of ease of parking; driving and parking the jeep in Chicago is a pain something bigger is going to be worse. Unfortunately this is one of those times where is it "babe we understand but this is one of those 'this is how it is' things". She has been driving the jeep around and has been getting used to it so I am thinking she can use it for when she needs to go out on her own for school and such. As I may not be needing the jeep here to get to and from work (getting on as an employee instead of a contractor means work from home) The independent woman driving the jeep around seems more reasonable than getting a 3rd vehicle.
