Excellent! Yes, the 5-speed on the base fwd.I don't have any real car 'pose' shots, just this one from after a wax job
and the reason we bought a wagon:
camping gear, climbing gear, two inflatable stand-up paddle boards - all fit without a box on top. Helps so much with MPG on road trips.
2016 VW 1.8T, 5spd stick (yes the non AWD 1.8T models are 5 spd)
lifetime average mpg: 38.x - gasser, not a TDI
'base' model - cheap to purchase. 15" tires - cheap to replace. Yet same motor as TiGeo
Great value, all-around use vehicle so far. Also likely it has seen more dirt roads than most SUVs and trucks.
2002 saab 9-5 wagon. Yeah took my old washer and dryer to recycling last weekend and was able to shut the back hatch as well. got plenty of looks at the station when I backed in opened my rear hatch and pulled a full size washer and dryer out of the back.Nice, but can it carry a full-sized clothes washer and dryer like a Subaru Impreza hatchback?
