    Yeah... but your old rabbit sounded like it was chewing nails and wouldn't get out of it's own way. I hear these TDI's are quiet and haul ass.

    Been making the rounds of the car dealerships.
    So far all I can agree on is everything costs too much.

    the list of possibles is growing.

    Chrysler Aspen
    VW Torag
    Audi Q7
    Pontiac Montana
    Toyota Sennia
    Chevy highlander

    None will haul a motorcycle.
    most have at least 6 cup holders
    all seat more than 2
    2 may carry a 4 X 8 sheet of plywood
    2 can be used as a camper
    5 are 4 wheel drive
    one costs more than my first house
    all have gasoline engines
    none get better than 20 mpg city

    Hummmmmmmm what to do what to do what to do
