    The Subaru Legacy Outback is a nice compromise. It's a wagon with AWD but higher ground clearance than a normal sedan/ wagon. The 4 cylinder gets about 28 MPG and will tow 2K lbs. If you want to spend about 4K more you can get a six. Very reliable and reasonable money, about 23K new and 15 - 17K for a newer used. Honda/ Toyata also make a nice smaller SUV (Passport/ Rav). Slightly less mileage and about the same money as the Subaru. I have a Subaru and like it. No one will ever confuse it for a Benz or Lexus SUV but you can buy 2 1/2 for the price of either of those.....

    Happy hunting........

    I'm doing it now, and it sucks. This was the first time in 33 years I've not had a boat...ugh. It's going to be a few until the next one too. Good luck.

    Eclipse/Talon, too much to break. Almost any of the AWD have been launched hard. But, if you find one not beat up, they dont require much to break the 13 sec mark.

    Older Impreza Subaru, but there is a bit of clutch chatter, and under steer.

    I get over 20 in the city, close to 30 on freeway trips, if I keep it around 75 mph that is....

    Go with a Subaru.
    Good mileage, good AWD system, run forever with minimal maintenance. Hold value pretty well too.

    Audi and VW's are great but if they do break they can be expensive to fix. I would go with the Subaru

    Put your best foot forward!

    I have a 87 4000 Quattro with 305,000 miles. Have never had any problems with it. No repairs. Only maintenance. Still runs and handles like new.
    Also have a 2001 S4. Again, no problems. Very fast and handles great.

    I'd go with the Blazer/Durango/Explorer route. If you stick with the V-6 it would have more than enough power and may get close to 20mpg. Many of the vehicles that people have suggested are quite expensive. I know that the small suv's are really holding their value, but an older one shouldn't be all that much. I'm halfway considering selling the Blazer...

    Just remember that many cars can only pull 1k.

    So, did you find a buyer for the 'Foul? I see that the ad got pulled...
