    I've had 7 years in a Citroen Grand Picasso which has been a great family workhorse but as boring as f*ck to drive. Preferred it to the Zafira the other half ran for a number of years.

    I'd be wary of going to a car supermarket type place - their staff tend to be very hard sell and you'll feel VERY pressured into buying then and there - and probably taking some not too cheap finance deals and service plans as well.

      Before you start shopping for a 7 seater you may need to qualify how important is it that the second row middle seat is full size. If it is important your choice will be narrowed greatly.
      We wanted 3 actual seats in the middle row and just about the only one we could find that did that was a Ford S Max. Had it for 2 years now, great car.

      The French have had this market sussed for years. You won't go far wrong with a Renault Grand Scenic or CitroŽn C4 Picasso. They seem to get the interior layout just right for big families. The Kia Sorento is another that won't break the bank new or used. Further up in price is the Ford Galaxy and at the top end the Audi Q7.
      I would be looking at the first two to be honest. Tates in Portslade always seem to have CitroŽns on offer.
      Went over there recently and they all seemed to have Versos. I think even french people are starting to avoid french cars...

      We've had an S-Max for 7 years now and agree its an excellent car. Based on the Mondeo chassis it handles like a much smaller car and doesn't experience any roll while cornering. The drive is responsive and handles enough for you to enjoy the drive. The 2 rear seats are decent, adults can use them and a bit of boot space is still left. The 3 rear seats are all adjustable and recline independently of each other. When all the seats are down the space seems huge for the run to the tip or whatever. It's a really well thought out car which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

      We had a Land Rover Discovery that had seven decent sized seats. Bit thirsty though and road tax was very expensive.

      Shame Toyota don't still make the Previa. Love ours. 7 individual seats and still lots of luggage space with all 7 seats in use.

      Bought a 7 seater VW T4 'Multivan' second hand back in 2005 to cart our four kids about. The most practical vehicle I have ever owned and still have it. You can take out all the seats and you have a full size van, take some out, turn them around and even fold them all flat to form a bed.

      The kids have all left home now but with very minor alterations, the van is now me and the wifes modified camper van for holidays.

      Expensive initial outlay, but I highly recommend it as a safe, reliable family multi use vehicle for the long term.

      I've got, amongst other vehicles,a VW sharan. 1.9 turbo diesel,2006 auto and it is fab.My one and only gripe is the £305.00 per year road tax. It is like a tardis inside and all bar the front 2 seats come out easily making it essentially a carpeted 2 seater van.I think the manual version may attract a cheaper,although not much, road tax.
