I have been looking for another vehicle after I crashed my last car. In my looking, I have realized that 4 cylinders are generally cheaper to purchase and better on gas. My problem is that I live in the moderately hilly and curvy part of southern Ohio near Between Lancaster and logan. I have been told by some that 4cyls don't have enough power to tackle bills with ease. This they say causes increased engine wear thereby lessening the life of the engine and costing more in gas and engine maintenance. Basically, they think that a 4cylinder is too weak for anything but flat land excursions. I thought I would call on the wise and more rational minds on RT to answer this question. Thanks .
