Starting to think about retiring my 10 year old jetta, and not really sure what to buy. So I put this out to NBR for it's collective wisdom.
1: Fuel economy. This is a daily driver, and gas keeps creeping up. (not opposed to diesel… TDI looks good)
2: Available AWD or good snow handling. Whistler has had several big storms roll through in the last couple of years and I have been driving up in the middle of them to get in the Peak chair line. My F-150 costs about 100$ for that trip (see point 1)
3: Cargo room. Skis, bike gear, etc… wagons are cool.
4: New vs Used… not completely opposed to a new vehicle if it is the best option, but 2-3 years old is what I tend to buy.
So NBR - what should go on my shortlist?
