driving around on pavement in a large urban area. Wouldn't a nice V70 with
traction control do as well for you, and give better mileage? The V70 rides
a bit lower (better handling), and wouldn't have the added expense of 4x4
drivetrain repairs, when they come. And they will. Just a thought, since you
