IRVINE, Calif. Editors Offer Their New Car Choices for Mom, both Fun and Functional

IRVINE, Calif., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The 10 Great Mom Cars for Mother's Day 2009,, were named today by the expert editors from Kelley Blue Book,, the leading provider of new car and used car information.

The editors know that the car mom needs and the car mom wants are rarely one and the same. Roomy, functional and easy-to-clean are common requirements of the stereotypical 'Mom Car,' but when the sun is shining, the kids are at school and there's time for a little shopping and lunch, she'd rather grab the keys to something fancy and fun. Maybe the best 'Mom Car,' then, is two cars.

"We know that moms have a tough decision when it comes to car shopping, because they have to consider not just their own needs and wants, but what is practical and best for their family," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book and "For this list of 10 Great Mom Cars for Mother's Day 2009, we considered both sides of the debate and decided that mom shouldn't have to settle - there are both functional and fun choices for her out there."
