The van will be kept for transcontinental trips when we need tons of room, but otherwise we still need something that she likes to drive daily, and I can enjoy driving it on weekends.

There were some posts I saw about even modern TDI's not being able to fully warm up in -29C so if it gets really cold there that might be a concern.
