This ones pretty badass too. If I'd've won the Powerball I'd order one for serious ocean cruising (screw sailboats I like A/C).

What I like about the Terrain:
- Great legroom in front and in back. Handles the largest car seats with ease.
- Easy on gas with the 2.4 and 6A and isn't too much of a slug.
- Seats are very comfortable
- I like the dash with the built-in screen and rearview camera. The interior overall was mu...

To me they seem like vehicles that people buy because they don't need to tow with a Tahoe and they just can't bear to be seen driving a proper minivan. That said, I think they're good looking vehicles and I really like my sister's smaller GMC Terrain.

TDI VW's will honestly get 45mpg on the interstate cruising at 70mph. My mother's Jetta wagon, while ugly, does have an enormous moonroof and can honestly fit 4 people in comfort. Good legroom. Fold the rear seat down and it'll hold more than a Prius, too. And you can't get any Prius with a sweet si...

Yikes. That works but it's a loooong haul to Brissy from LAX and then you have to backtrack back to NZ.
Looking at the great circle mapper it's 8700 statute miles LAX-BNE-CHC vs 6500 miles LAX-AKL (and that's about 13 hours there and 12.5 hours return).
