Matt drove it during the Tango, so he probably would tell you that I am right in just getting rid of it. I love Volvo's, but based on the difficulty in getting parts and with baby #4 coming, which takes away from the weekend mechanic stuff, I am opting for a newer vehicle. Locked in on a 1998 Toyota Avalon. Same engine as my Sienna van, so I know how to work on it, hence learning curve is nil. Also all leather, which I have started to really like. I can spill a full Big Gulp on the seat and just wipe it off. If this doesn't work out I am going to try to find a nice Camry in the early 2000 age range.
I would love to go carbon free sub compact, but 4 kids I need something that can haul people and a little gear. I tried to talk Tamara into a motorcycle with a two person side car, but she is not too sure I can fit a baby seat in the sidecar. I always have the Kids bike cart I can hook to the back of the motorcycle, I wonder if those wheels are rated for 55 mph?
Here is a dream vehicle - WildFire Three wheels Better than four & it is a pickup.
