I know this is an odd place to ask this, but I trust the MR community much more than a site like Yahoo! Answers. Anyways, I'm currently in the market for a new car. I really would like to buy a Honda Civic (maybe the SI model because of the increased performance and manual transmission) or the Honda S2000 (Yes, I know it only gets 25MPG). However, every time it snows here I have second thoughts and start looking at all wheel drive cars, such as the Audi A4 Quattro. Now, for as long as I can remember nearly everyone I know has told me that Audi's are only good until about 70 thousand miles, and then the car should be traded in, because that's about when Audi's require the owner to invest serious amounts of money to keep the car running. I have a GMC Yukon Denali to take if the weather gets really bad, however I would prefer not to take it as when the AWD system senses snow, it reduces the highway mileage to about 11mpg. I'm looking for a car to drive 80 miles a day (round trip), and one that's not gutless on the highway for passing either. Currently, my Camry is one of the best 2WD cars I've ever driven in the snow, however even it has problems once I get off the freeway and drive up to my house, as there's about 3 steep hills I have to worry about. This is what concerns me. Basically, I'm wondering if an Audi A4 is a good car, meaning will it go to 150k with not that much of an investment, and if it won't what is a good car for under 20k that will? Thanks for any suggestions.
