If the adults are tall, the 9-5 will be much more comfortable for long trips, in the back seat. > School is for me, I'm a FT college student, working for the next few days > until they give me the boot. Heh...I know that boot... I'm thinking that for 16,000, you can get a much better 9-3 than you can get a 9-5. If the rear seat room is OK in the 9-3, it'd be your best "bang for the buck". IHMO, of course. Hope this helps - let us know what you decide and why if you'd be so kind! Dave Hinz
