Need Help Choosing a Car

My car is in the shop and it might just cost more to repair than it's worth, and if so, I'll need to find something quick! I drive a Saturn Wagon... been thinking about a change anyway, because I can't seat more than two kids and I'd like more seating for friends, etc... I would love to hear what you are driving, what you like/don't like about it, how much seating you have, etc.. Thanks for your help!
