I'd appreciate some advice or some input from fellow TB'ers, seeing as many of you use your vehicles the same way I intend to use mine, schlepping gear all over the place. I'm in the market for a new vehicle atm, but I'm not really sure what I want. I have a few requirements, or at least things I'm looking for in a vehicle. -At least average fuel efficiency (think 25-30 range) -Decent cargo space -All-wheel drive or 4WD would be nice (not a deal breaker though) -Under $30k or less if possible (I'm not the type to be able to afford the luxury brands) I had considered some of the smaller SUV's (Mazda CX5, GMC Terrain, Ford Escape, etc.) but the prices seem to vary a lot and some manufacturers seem like you pay more for less. I'm not against a car, but the cargo space is important. So I'm completely fine with hatchbacks/crossovers. Lastly, I'd LIKE something with all-wheel drive, but that's not 100% a deal breaker. I do drive in a snowy climate, but it's never been an issue for me. It would just be a nice addition. Just sort of curious about your personal experiences with vehicles that fit the criteria. What did you like? What did you dislike? Any models out there that are just too much of a hidden value to pass up? Thanks!
