Help gladhands pick out a whipped wagon - Page 3

The Volvo XC70 would probably be a good fit. As far as I understand, most of the issues with this model has been sorted out in the last couple of years. Worth a look at least.

My usual .02 on automobiles (don't ask me how I know): European cars, any of them, will break you on maintenance costs relative to American or Asian cars. That's a promise. And, Audis are this decade's douche-mobile. That is all, and happy motoring.

We ended up going with the Subaru Forester. The signt lines in the Crosstour were awful. The rear windshield is like a porthole. The A3 Quattro barely exists, and we didn't want to wait. In the end, we went with the lez-mobile and saved ten grand.

Congrats. Hope it lives a long and trouble free life in your hands.

I've secretly been eyeing an Audi S6 Avant Quattro (340hp, fuck yea!) that somehow only has 60k miles and is around $18,000. Would be a great whip for carrying cycling, skiing, golf gear etc. Plus could fit a good number of adults comfortably. Or a dog if I ever got around to owning one. I'd need to move out of NYC to make this something feasible though...

340hp is a 4.2 V8 (the C5 model)

Would love to have the newer V10 one - the 4.2 V8 one, not so much. There's a family next door that has the S8 and the 5.2 R8, so they have 2/3rds of the cars that are sold with that engine... haha. The V10 cars are something special.

V10 ones are also several multiples more expensive than the one I'm eyeing. Not even close to affordable to me nod[1].gif
