i know this is not polically correct , but even at $3/gallon it's still cheaper than was in the 80"s accounting for inflation. hey what is better cheap gas or AVAILABLE GAS???
it doesn't make much sense to pay 8-10k more or loose 12k in trade in for "better" milage. it's not pc to drive suv's but my ML320 got better milage than my sienna. i'd like that wrx option, looks small, people "think" it gets good milage, i could even get a honda hybrid badge and stick it on and BLOW THE DOORS OFF EVERYONE. i live 2.5 miles from work, if it wasn't for the steep hills, i'd get a trek bike, and very colorful bike riding outfit (something i could zip off to show off my cut body and corporate grey--ha ha ha.(i don't have such a cut body--but i can dream can't I???)
ok here... hold on and hope you've read about anger management...but I DON'T CARE ABOUT MILAGE. i need a car of my choice to take best care of my family needs. if that was the suburban so be it (maybe with 4 wheel steering)
what i want are more diesels, now that is a solution. if they had that for my sienna and it MADE FINANCIAL sense i'd get it. but diesels are usually a 1900 option for vw and 3500$ option on GM or Ford trucks. we are all stuck. i want diesel (common rail, direct injection like europe)
so anger all over me....i can take it, my boss has numbed me
as an aside, my wifes volvo is a hoot to drive wanton speed great hwy milage, and totally cool looking an only one like it. it's dash is totally swedish in design.(red with spoiler brushed chrome interior....very under appreciated for performance against the audi a4 and bmw ix 05)
