We're a one car family. Currently have a 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan which we bought as the family mobile but also because it had just enough towing capacity to pull our pop up trailer. We're going to be selling the trailer (kids are more interested in tent camping now) and my son is almost old enough to get his learner's permit so we're thinking about getting a new vehicle (the son learning to drive part is applicable because Seattle streets are small and narrow and the van is big). As usual, my wife and I start out at opposite ends of a spectrum. She wants an SUV with a 3rd row of seating. I've pointed out that we need "adult capable" third row seating which puts us into an SUV class that's pretty much as big as the van. She wants the flexibility the van gives us to take along extra people on trips at times. I'm on board with an SUV as I like the higher seating but it's not a necessity. We go up into the mountains a fair bit both in summer and winter so some good power as well as AWD are a must (tired of putting chains on). Subaru is by far the dominant vehicle in Seattle as the versatility is hard to beat for conditions around here. Looking now only because I was talking to a friend who is in management at the local Subaru/VW dealership - he says with the way sales are going, there are going to be tons of deals coming up to get things moving again. Subaru is already offering 0% financing right now. Idle thoughts from the RC crowd?
