	the newest legacy outbacks i like better than the volvo, i
looked at them both extensively.

	the "class" though is midsize wagon/sedans or something.  i am
not sure AWD is part of the classification.  i think VW has something
in the same class.

	poking around the EPA site i don't see too much info that really
explains it - such as rankings.  just something i read in a car rag once.
they appear to consider it an SUV.  in that class, the EPA pollution
score is 2 out of 10.  there are other things that are 1 out of 10 of
course.  definitely not worst in class though, for 2004.
