Now you mostly see station wagons driving around River Oaks and The Memorial Villages. Jerry Reynolds, The Car Pro, says most of today’s stations wagons and not for the budget minded! He recently drove a Jaguar Sportbreak. “The thing about the Jag wagon is --- it looks like a Jag! It’s not your dad’s station wagon. It looks like a pretty sporty looking rig!”
Like the Jaguar, the Mercedes Benz and Porsche wagons you see in “those” neighborhoods are not cheap. The Porsche Panarama starts $97,000, the Mercedes Benz AMG Wagon starts at $107,000.
If someone really wants a wagon – he usually steers them to a Volvo. “Volvo has continued to make great station wagons for many years. They have some style and are such good cars.”
Reynolds says only 1% of the total number of vehicles sold last year were station wagons. No wonder we see so few of them now. But – given who’s making them these days – wouldn’t it be great to be one of those “one percenters!”
