hmm well, if you look back in the oh so short of american automobile history, in the 50's and 60's station wagons were huge! now look, you barely ever see any! its all minivans and suv's...accauly minivans are going outa style and these dumb crossover things are in.so lets just hope suv's die off in a hurry
Don't even get me started on @*$%*#^ crossovers. The very concept is ridiculous.
I don't mind crossovers. They're just cars that look like SUVs, aka an "aesthetic" SUV. SUVs aren't really SUVs anyway, since I don't think half of them can withstand the off-road punishment that they claim. If someone has the ego-need to own a car that looks like an SUV but still gets midsize-normal-car MPG, that's ok with me.
I'm actually surprised they weren't done 10 years ago.
Getting a bit back on topic, yeah, that would work great. Just goes to show that even average cars can do great things if the owner has half of a brain. I would much rather have a lighter weight car, with the option to fold down the back seats, than an open SUV that would rarely serve its purpose. Oh well...
Oh, and it is awesome that it was a Volkswagen! The deal would only be sweetened if it were a TDi..!
I haul 8 foot lumber all the time, a few months back I picked up a bundle of 10 foot long steel rods, when the guy at the industrel suply store saw what kind of car I had he made some comment about how alot of people who come to pick up large items have hatchbacks and often have fewer problems loading them then with pickup trucks.
