In the market for a car that can handle the snow, reliable, and good MPG. Performance doesn't matter. Looks don't matter. Nothing fancy required. Comfort not required. Just needs to excel in these categories: 1. Reliability and upkeep cost 2. Snow performance 3. MPG Max price is $20k, but honestly, the cheaper, the better. Will consider used. As for new cars, looking at a 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek or Impreza 5-door, or Chevy Cruze FWD with the Ecoboost engine. I am aware that the Crosstrek is just an Impreza with upgraded suspension and brakes, so is it really worth the extra $2000? Anyone have any recommendations for used cars that are comparable to those 3 models? Really needs to get at least 25 MPG. Love ya MacRumors!
