I live near the Boston, Massachusetts (MA) area all of my life. I drive from the Boston area to Shrewsbury (it’s right next to Worcester). I drive on main roads and sometimes there are uphills as well as downhills along the way. MA has all kinds of crazy weather. I need a car that can handle snow, sleet (once in a while we have hail) and rain. It’s not often do we see the sun. MA has A LOT of potholes, construction and digging. My price range is about 7K to roughly 25K. I’d prefer NOT to be in debt for the rest of my life. I want a car. I DO NOT want a pickup, a hatchback nor a coupe. i MIGHT consider an SUV, but that will be a last resort since gas prices are ridiculously high. I’m not to keen on station wagons, vans or minivans either. I have a Nissan Sentra right now and driving during the winter season SUCKS!! Not sure IF I want to deal with another car that has RWD and/or FWD. Since I can’t change a tire nor do I have the space…changing from regular tires to winter tires seems pricey and time consuming.
