i bet you could find a good BMW 3series. wont eat too much gas, looks good, rides well, small enough where you won't be the token taxi driver.

i can also vouch for 1998 nissan pathfinders. i've put about $2000 into it over the 3 years and 30k miles i've owned it, but its money that will keep it going much longer.

question on BMW's...I was looking at them used...but was told not to get them because to get them repaired costs much more than a Civic per se because I have to bring it to a BMW specific shop. Is this true?

Don't ask for the leftover money, just get something close to or a little over (if you can pay the difference) $20K and see what happens from there.

I think RWD is better in the snow...

Dude get a Audi A4 All Road Wagon. They are sweet and you can get a used one around 25 grand.

They are awesome cars and great in the snow

2006 Hyundai Tiburon. Should be able to get one for $15K cash, and if you get the 4 cylinder instead of the V6, it's classified as a compact car instead of a sports car on your insurance. Same exact body style as the 2005 Tiburon that I own (click them for a larger picture):

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
