My wife drives 2019 voltswagon atlas. Compact. 3 rows. Back seat folds down. Several bells and whistles. But you can get a toned down version. Drives great. Gets 22-25 mpg. Rides great. Lots of safety features. I’m a big fan of it.
The Rambo Lambo..about 30 years ago. And yes, it had the V-12.No. No. No.
What's next, a Lamborghini station wagon?
TAFKAP beat me to it, we got the Ascent a couple years ago and have been real happy with it. 30ish mpg, good amount of room and easy to climb in and out of which is a plus.Yup.....official vehicle of the LPGA and WNBA, for sure!
But seriously though, Subaru has stepped their game up beyond the Outback. It's worth looking into.
We did the same thing with a Mercedes R350 it’s an all wheel drive station wagon. It has impressive 4wd capabilities with street tire.My wife’s 2011 Mercedes GL350 rides pretty good. I paid 13000 three years ago at 155k. Older couple from Birmingham drove it and had all the expensive repairs with the air shocks already completed. A Bosch Alternator repair got me for 1000, but it is going strong at 210k. Already got new warranty airbag replacements and now need to replace some fuel thing. It seems MB rigged the emissions tests and there was a class action suit. Lawyers get rich and I get $3200 check after I have the dealer fix for free. So far, this vehicle has been a great deal.
I think it gets about 23-25 mpg on highway and about 20 in town. Sucker is heavy and has some torque for sure. Wife drives it like its a wild bronco while I prefer to ease it around and still make the same time.
My wife likes the body lines on the Mazda but I’ll let her read this thanks.I’m driving a loaded 2008 Mazda mX-9 now. It is very roomy and comfy with all the amenities and sunroof. Deer, mini bikes, boat, camper, trailers, and all easily ride on my hitch carriers. The wife and kids hate it. The kids are going to drive it in high school they just take don’t know it yet.
I paid 6500 in 2019 with 140k on it. No repairs yet.gas mpg is terrible...maybe 18 on the highway.
My next vehicle will be a good used white 4Runner or Lexus, or a 4 door Jeep. I may even get a convertible MB, BMW, Volvo, or Audi. For some reason convertibles can be found a lot cheaper than a Jeep and the wind in your hair feels just as good.
