I thought about a Dodge Caravan, just for the room
and the fact that almost anyone can fix them. But
then I thought "being a sales rep is brutal and you
need ..." a decent place to sit and a nice car to
drive.  The Caravan just wouldn't cut it. With the
100 S Avant, all my samples fit in the back, with
some room to spare (for new product lines).

Mileage: I don't know what it is yet, but on day 2
I put another 300 miles on the car. Over 2 days, I
drove from Concord NH to Westport CT and back, then
down to Westfield MA on one tank of gas. I think I
can get about 500 miles on a tank.  I'm real happy
with that.  The boss puts about $50/DAY!!! into her
Chevy Trailblazer with Thule roof pod.  She carries
more stuff, but that's a steep gas bill.
