You really need to post a lot more pics. All the exterior, interior, wheels, and close-ups where appropriate, etc. No one is going to buy your car based on that one pic. Good luck with the sale.

My wife and I are expecting our first, (and only) :) child in September. I have been trying to sell my 3 hatch as well. I have realized that these cars actually will work pretty good as a family car. Many people on the forum have multiple kids and use their 3 as the big car. Get a roof rack to expand storage as needed and keep enjoying that car!

I have two cars as it is and my wife has the third. I need to have just one car and the speed will not hold much. After spending the day with my god daughter I realize all the other stuff that goes along with a child, other than just the child and a seat. It blew me away how much stuff I am going to be carrying around!

When I was a kid my parents had two (count 'em, TWO) Geo Metros in a row. And the first was the 2-door 3-cylinder model :lol: And it wasn't just me, there was also a golden retriever during the second Metro's time :lol:

Now, I can understand not wanting to drive something with quite so much raw power when you have a kid, but size matters not ;)

I'd say it's tempting except I have absolutely no intention of buying another car anytime in the foreseeable future. The sad part is the cosmic blue is one of the only colors I'd trade the lava orange for. :(

Just so you know having a child with the 3 5-door is quite doable. I have a 10 month old and we can pretty easily cram in stuff for a week trip for me the wife and the baby all into the car. Sure we use some of the back seat/floor space as well, but it's certainly doable. For most of the first year all you need to carry around with you on a normal jaunt is the seat, diaper bag and stroller (unless you're carrying). For longer trips just pop the cargo cover off the back section and you have a bunch more vertical space.

Man I have 2 kids one is 6 the other is 2. both kids the dog and a days worth of crap for the beach all fit in my hatch. I must say Keep the Hatch :lol:

better yet get a roof rack so you can stow the bikes and other crap on the roof.

Since we're already off topic...

Both my woman and I are U.S. immigrants, and we often laugh at how much space Americans think they "need." Her mom used to drive her and her three brothers (all born within a four-year span) as toddlers in a Polski Fiat 125p:
