(I drive about 3K miles every 6 weeks and at only 20mpg, that means I spend A LOT on gas.) We do have 2 100 lb dogs, so I would need a wagon or a smaller SUV, but I do look forward to the day when my car dies and I can get a smaller one.
We would still use the Scion frequently. The van is mine while DH is at work or for grocery shopping, times when we have the dog and stroller, etc. So the Scion will still be used more.
