Subaru Outback Wagons - You can NOT beat them for rough country / good gas mileage / carrying capacity. They are AWD and 600k miles isn't unheard of. The clearance under them is unbelievable.
They have High Output V4s or V6s - They are comfortable / quiet / economic /powerful and will go anywhere that Cherokee you're talking about will go Marlon :) JohnnyO -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Carl A Jeptha Sent: Thursday, May 11, 2006 6:51 AM To: WISPA General List Subject: Re: [WISPA] gas prices Hey, leave my Taurus wagon alone. I would like to go back to an AWD Astro/Safari, but the cost of gas is the problem, but the height, the space and the AWD makes all the difference. the difference in mileage between the two is double. $25.00CDN and $45.00CDN for the same distance. Can't argue with the wife (Accounting Dept.) with those figures. :-D You have a Good Day now, Carl A Jeptha http://www.airnet.ca office 905 349-2084 Emergency only Pager 905 377-6900 skype cajeptha Marlon K.
