Actually, I can't imagine that a Saab wouldn't rise to the task. My former Vauxhall 2.0 litre Cavalier(s) was voted a great towing vehicle and I don't see anything that would prevent a Saab from fulfilling the same role. > I just got back from 2 weeks vacationing at a beautiful lakeside > cottage.

For that there are much better instruments. An SUV is to be honest simply a marketing ploy. If you lived in the UK and had a farm, I'm sure you would own a Land Rover. It's purpose built for the task. Tough, rough, basic and very durable. SUVs are a 'boutique' version of such practical vehicles. In reality they are rarely used off-road or indeed in any circumstances that would reasonably justify their style of construction. A popular name for them in the UK is 'Chelsea Tractors'. Green Wellies are required too of course ! Graham
