First off, Scirocconut (if that's your real name) the only way you will get the Roadmaster key is from my cold, dead, greasy hand...and I really don't think I'd wish the fuel economy of an LT1 V8 hauling around 4,500 lbs of American steel on anyone with small children (10 mpg...THINK OF THE CHILDREN...oh yeah, they'll have to pay for their own gas). Anyway...this 2012 Mazda5 Sport here on eBay bidding for $1,050 with 4 days to go is the correct answer to the person who wants a small minivan that gets good fuel economy. The Mazda5 might have sliding rear doors, but it is truely car sized without the added mass and thirsty V6 fuel economy that dominates the people carrier class.
What is a better small people hauler for less? Comments below.
