Long Term New Car Search

Alycia and I are starting to kick around the idea of getting a new(er) car sometime in the near future, though it probably won't be a new car, it'll be new to us. Ideally we'd like something with all wheel drive (for those snowy, icy moments in life), and some decent storage in back, like a RAV-4 or Honda CRV size. The goal would be to have enough room for dog crates, as well as enough space for a Minneapolis Costco or IKEA trip.

In the meantime, we'll see how the Northdakotmobile does this winter and then decide in the Spring/Summer of next year what we're gonna do. More than likely we'll get something before summer since the a/c in the Northdakotamobile is out again, and probably not worth repairing.

Check out the Nissan Xterra and the ford escape hybrid. I sat in the rav4 and the crv and both just didn't seem fitting for taller people. The Xterra also has a nice plasticized interior including the fold down seat portion for doggie transport. It can also tow a small trailer if you ever want a small boat, jet ski, or camper trailer.
