i currently drive a 99 monte carlo i bought for $1500 that is pretty much an animal in the snow. the car rides smooth as hell and i really enjoy driving it in all conditions, but the intake gasket just went and i need to get that done. this thread has me considering selling it and grabbing an older legacy or forester, craigslist in my area is loaded with them for $800-$2000.

It'd be sure nice to know you'll always make it up the hill even if it's pukin'.

People always talk up subaru awd cars but I pull them out of snow banks and >4" deep snow all winter long. I would opt for the higher clearence on a vehicle and front or 4x4. Couple of guys at the hospital swear by their vw eurowagons. Both have older ones. Both live over a mile back on unplowed roads. One in breck and the other outside of vail. My truck is definately not cheap but ill swear by big heavy 4x4. Mines a dodge 1 ton 4x4 megacab. Lifted with 35" tires.... diesel motor. I keep a tow strap with me.... for pulling subarus back onto the road and outta snow banks.

Lol not challenging. plus its just a car, not a rock crawler (jeep for that). Ive pulled out a couple s10 blazers, a jeep liberty, and a land rover from snow and mud. ive also blasted through 16in of snow for a few miles with a drift every once in a while. its all driver.

also, i know its limits and dont go past them, never been stuck

Id take a subaru over any truck on icy roads any day. but deep snow and a little weight in the back your dodge probably rocks

Driver over-confidence and a little "its a 4x4 bro" and yup, over the bank she goes. Get a Justy and drive off banks on purpose?
