The Perils of owning zero cars

The Illian household is now car-less.  Our lone surviving car– the 2001 Mercury Sable– that paragon of luxury has now expired.  Matt was driving it to the repair shop this morning and it broke down on the way there.  Diagnosis–broken transmission.  Given that the cost of fixing it is well over 1K, we decided that we are now in the market for a new-ish car.

Any suggestions?  We want something that can seat 5-7 people and that gets pretty good gas mileage.  Of course I would like leather seats, etc.  But I don’t think that’s “in the budget” right now.
