First, I agree with everyone else, your best choice is a minivan. The SUV will be parking nightmare and you'll get tired of climbing in and out of it. Further, you'll have to fold "up" the third row of seats to fit any decent amount of luggage (I am talking about Tahoe/Yukon - the Suburban is a monster, avoid it). These seats do not fold into the trunk (due ...

In any case, you will need children's seats (just for the record; and your budgeting). Most of the UAVs (aka SUVs) are essentially trucks. Oversized, and if you are not used to that size, you may not really enjoy things. And they are quite expensive to rent and to operate. So, you have another "vote" for a minivan or a station wagon. I don't think that ...

Sounds like you have done tons of research already regarding the vehicle. As a FL/Orlando resident I have helped folks come down here and I see how you can overspend in various ways. Looks like you are all over the map here. Assuming you are going to be relatively centrally located at least part of the time then you could probably hit the state in a 2 ...

I think that the provided answers give solid advice worth considering. However, since this is a vacation to Florida, I feel that someone might as well throw in some "Pros" for going with the oversized, luxury SUV. To be clear, my hunch is that the mini-van class will probably suit your families needs, but if the rental car dealership has enough cars ...

I'm going to second the minivan suggestion. In particular, the Dodge Caravan / Chrysler Town and Country (essentially the same vehicle with some aesthetic differences) is a good choice. Luggage for 4 people for 3 weeks is probably going to take up a lot of space, which will likely exceed the baggage capacity of most sedans. Minivans, on the other hand, ...

For what you are doing a minivan works best. It has plenty of room for you and the kids and lots of baggage. The side doors are nice a big making it easy to put the kid's car seats in (and out). You tend to sit a little higher up in a minivan compared to a sedan,l so better for checking out the scenery as you drive. The SUVs really provide nothing more ...

A Chevy Suburban is an absurdly large truck. It won't handle like a car, it won't fit in some parking spaces, and there may even be a few people left in America who will look at you funny for driving such a monster. Let's start from the smaller end and work our way up, shall we? I'm looking the Hertz offerings because it's one of the most major rental ...
