So I take my drivers test in 3 days and I need a car to get around. Since I live in montana i'll need something that will perform in the winter conditions. My budget is $4000-$5000. I was looking at Ford's Expidition and Explorer and I don't want a subaru. You have to pay out the ass to get a cool one, so NS what are your suggestions?
jeep cherokee with the 4.0. with the 5speed you can manage about 23-24 on the highway, with the auto it will be around 20-21. Plenty of room for 4, or 5 if you cram plus gear. Great 4x4. They are a dime a dozen too. Cheap to work on too. 4.0 I6 with the aw4 auto trans is bulletproof.
