I am too LAZY to search/read the posts in the 100+ pages this thread has gotten.

I will get straight to the point and see what kind of sarcasm you guys have for me :

Some people on here are saying Hondas/economy sedans & coupes (civic,accord, 4cyl bangers, etc) can make it to the mountains for snowboarding and back (as long as you use cautionary procedures) are as RELIABLE as bigger better vehicles (trucks, SUV's) ALL while doing it with better MPG.

In my 5 years of snowboarding...I have used Honda civic, VW rabbit and Mazda3 Wagon (current). All are reliable and can take me to the mountains no problem (as long as cautionary measures are taken) PLUS the added benefit of better MPG.

BUT...I am always "wishing" for BIGGER and BETTER . I also want PEACE OF MIND that it will take me where ever I need no matter what the road conditions.

I know what that requires: AWD or 4X4 in TRUCK or SUV body.

BUT...I HATE the terrible MPG those vehicles get

Should I stick with 4cyl bangers or upgrade?

I believe TACO, FRONTIER or Xterra as being the middle ground or "best of both worlds".

To me...TACO is a really HEAVY contingent on my list!!! White, black or red...she would look so SEXY on some aggressive snow tires, a good 4-5" lift and what the heck...while we are at it...a camper shell for parking lot CAMP OUTS, HIGH TIMES and the occasional BOOTY CALL!

Let the sarcasm begin!

It's easy to convince yourself you need a big car, especially when you need it to stuff your giant vagina in the trunk.

The only reason anyone needs a big truck would be off roading, or some actual utility usage like construction, hauling, towing...

If there is enough snow that you would need the clearance, any pass you would be driving on would be closed.

All you need is some AWD and snow tires (preferably a higher clearance than a GTR) and you will notice a huge difference from an econobox.

FWIW, my Golf R has AWD and a lower clearance and has had no issues driving to the mountains on a regular basis. And that is with all season tires, not snows.

Forgot to mention Lancer EVO's, WRX's and the Golf R's. Haha

In fact...The whole Subaru Line is actually pretty good if AWD and good MPG is all you want/need.

EVO's, WRX's and GOLF R's are a little on the small side for me. I like a little more cargo space. OUTBACK and LEGACY looks really nice.

I think TOYOTA RAV4's have AWD/4X4 options too? No? Correct me. If they do...I think they might be a good contender too.

The new forester gets 33ish mpg. Outback probably even better. The new outback is very close to an SUV in terms of clearance and cargo space.

Outback boasts the same clearance as a jeep cherokee I believe.

Clearance is overrated IMO. No lift on my 2006 and it muds better than most lifted trucks. The driver and type of tires make a difference more than anything. Big tires don't help on icy roads.
