been driving a landcruiser for years. was tired of paying $ for 12mpg. i went researching used vehicles.
-used car, max $5,000
-min gas mileage 25mpg+
-enough space to fit wife, 2 kids & 100lb dog
-roof space for 11ft paddle board
-something reliable (from what a read most older volvo wagons were chit)
been driving my '02 wagon for almost 2 years now. small issues but overall i'm happy. looking forward to diving into the forum for tips.
