As I told y'all below, our Dodge Caravan needed struts. These roads we run on are either rough rock or pot-holed tar and chip, with so many patches that you can't possibly miss all the bumps, and they just destroy a "normal" car. I'd like to find a vehicle that can take the rough roads, is high enough off the ground to make it into our woods road which is partly dirt for now, can haul 5 people, is fuel efficient, and won't cost a fortune to have worked on. Do you all have any ideas what might fit the bill? The fuel efficiency is really important, as we run up a LOT of mileage, since we're approx. 30 miles to any town big enough to have a Walmart or "chain" grocery store, and also to check on my mom at least twice a week. I would like 4 wheel drive if it weren't SO expensive to have fixed. I know I'm probably dreaming, but if I could come even close to meeting all these needs, I'd be happy! Thanks for suggestions.
