I don't understand that either.

When replacing my wife's old Exploder, the number one requirement of the new car: she has to sit up high. And there was no compromise on this.


We ended up with an '04 Vue, 2WD 4cyl manual, which has been pretty decent on gas. With her driving (no thought toward driving efficiently) she's getting 20mpg around town and as much as 33 on the hwy.
