station wagons?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by bassmonkey144, Oct 17, 2003.


  1. are there any station wagons that get good gas milage? just wondring, cause i was thinkin about it one day when i saw a vista cruiser broke down on the side of the road.:bawl: such a cool car
     
  2. Jetta TDI wagon!
     
  3. Seriously, I love wagons, but more in the sense of hot euro stealth-bomber types. Think Volvo 850R touring. Or a '95 BMW M5 Touring. oh mama!
     
  4. I drive a commodore VK Station wagon! yeah baby...

    for the Aussies: Yes yes it is a boong wagon and its white!

    There's a foul joke about Commodores.. if anyone wants it... PM me.. hehe

    booyah!


    but that is more of a hatchback than a wagon.

    *shrug*

    I prefer hatchbacks anyway.

    If you're thinking about a WRX wagon also take a look at the Forester XT. It's just as fast if not faster than the WRX and offers more utility.

    I drive a Subaru Outback wagon. 22/27 city/highway mpg. Not a ton of power but that doesn't matter very much to me anyway.

    Dunno if you can get these bad boys overseas, but the holden combo is the shiz!

    Sometimes im mistaken for the ice-cream man:D , but farg it, you can fit a small army in these things and you can also get close to 600km a tank.

    I'll take one of these with the V-8 when released. But I'm afraid the mileage will not be good.

    I have a 2001 Volvo V-70. The best car I have ever owned. It has a great stereo too.
     
  18. :D

    I've been averaging about 20 mpg on mine. The fact that it requires premium gas kind of sucks, though, since I've had to fill up countless times since I got it. Just under 3 months, and over 6300 miles on it already.
     
  19. Good ole' SUV!

  20. But the Forester won't handle as well as a WRX. The Forester (for me anyways) isn't very appealing in the looks department.:)
