So, my dad's '02 Subaru Legacy Outback (the model before they became gigantic) is on its way out. He's looking to replace it with something with the following characteristics:
-As big as the old Sooby or, preferably, smaller
-More MPG than the outgoing Sooby (which was something like 25 on a VERY good day )
Looking for recommendations; none of us have bought cars in the past decade, so we're interested to hear what's out there.
He's actually kind of interested in the AWD Volvo C30, too, so something in that form factor would be nice.
Audi A3? BMW xi model wagon?
edit: We talking brand new? or new to him?
