help me buy a car!

3 choices:

Honda CR-V
Subaru Forrester
Nissan Exterra

Wadda ya think?

I live where it snows like crazy. 4WD isn't an indulgence when you're driving through the white mountains in a snow storm....

So anyone have a suggestion?

I have to say I'm LOVE with the design of the XTERRA. It looks so cool, and maybe it will be very helpful for you when it snows hard. I don't know.

Between those 3, I prefer the XTerra. Get it with some of the neat little adventure options too.

My personal recommendation would be to find a still-new-on-the-lot 2001 Jeep Cherokee; they stopped making them in June to make way for the goofy little Jeep Liberty, but you could possibly find some, maybe even with a 0% interest plan. I special ordered one back in 1996 and I never want to get rid of it. I also like the Wrangler, but you would probably want a hardtop due to the cold weather up there in Maine or wherever you are.

if you're that concerned about the snow issue i'd stick to the subaru, excellent 4wd systems.
my father has an x5 that is givin' me cavities 'cause it's to damn sweet, but i think it's a little out of that price range.

Kobayashi's bizarre use of colour, superfast editing and extreme camera angles, coupled with a hilariously deadpan performance by Toshiro Takemitsu as the inspector who discovers a whole family of ghosts travelling without valid tickets, remains without peer.

you can have mine, a Nissan Terrano II. Its excellent in snow and ice.

But if you want to choose between those 3 types you mentioned, Id say g ofor the Subaru. Its ugly, but its way better in snow and ice then the other ones.
