But even so, for me, I dislike the sluggish feeling many > cars get when loaded down with four people. Turbo for me... :) Here in Sweden itīs the other way. Very few cars are sold with automatic transmission. There is only 8 million people living in a country that is 1600 kilometers long and with a lot of mountains. And 3 million of those people live in the tree biggest cities. So whereever we want to go itīs many kilometers driving 90-110 kilometers an hour up and down hills, often with a trailer hanging behind, passing other slower cars. So cars with turbo and manual transmissions are very popular here. Also maybe because Saab was the first to really make sucess with a turbo in a "normal" car. > Personally, if I was buying, I would definitely want a 5-door. Make > the # of doors match the # of seats. Itīs definately much easier when you have small kids. Yours Tomas Rapp, Sweden
