Should I spend the extra money on something with 4x4 or AWD? I am an experienced winter driver in Northern New England. My concern would be travel hampered by snow/storms in the higher elevations where they might require chains or AWD.
Thanks for your input.
Ah yeah. That would be a yes on the AWD or 4x4. Subaru Outback or Forester would be a good choice. Even then be prepared for emergencies and being stuck for days without cell phone service or any help. You have no idea where your driving do you?
If you see my buddy driving his 4x4 Chevy Blazer in Montana with his hand out the window pulling on screw driver tied to a long shoe lace attached to the throttle cable under the hood, just wave high. His name is Andy. At intersections look out. He has to give her a good hard pull which sometimes puts down some rubber.
