    As far as the Sportwagon goes, it's gotta be the diesel. They're always expensive to buy.
    Plus the one you showed has 126000km on it. I would want one with half or something to avoid to many repairs.

    the V70 isnt all too big. i have one but ive been searching everywhere for a good V70R since the 2.4L in mine is a dog and it handles like dog poop

    They can call them SUVs but they are nothing more than mini vans on stilts.

    If you want something that will no doubt cost quite a bit to maintain why not get something a bit more economical? Volvo V70R would be equally unreliable but easier to mod and would use around a third less fuel around town.

    Maybe fit one bike in the back. Anything VW or BMW is going to get expensive long term. We were a 100% loyal VW family until the last 3 all kept breaking down at random times. With very low mileage. Just could not trust they would work with the wife and kids out alone.

    Friend of mine is a service manager at BMW and says you would be crazy to buy one. 75% of all new ones sold come back within a couple of months with some issue. He even sold his X5 because of the troubles he was having.

    Anywho, when the VW's worked they were a blast to drive. I currently use a Dodge Caravan to haul bike stuff. Fits 3 29ers in the back no problem.
