Default Recommend me a good snow car under $7,000

Any car that can handle really well going through mountain passes in the snow. I don't care what make or model. Just has to be under $7,000

Studded snow tires are less than $7k.

I have a buddy with a '96 FWD Subaru wagon that lives outside of Breckenridge, CO. Never gets stuck.

There may be better cars suited, but really all you need is the right tires.

94 Jeep Cherokee.

I got mine for $500, and spent another $500 getting it running. Best. Winter. Car. Ever.

Last winter, I took it out 'hooning every time we had anything on the ground. The best was when it spent 8 hours raining, then dumped 6" of snow on top. I was doing 4wd donuts in a big hole full of 8" of muddy, snowy mess, and it never even pretended like it thought it was going to get stuck.

GC8 Impreza's are around 5-7k stock and do a great job while having fun. A little short in the wheelbase department for my girlfriend sometimes but I loved it.

I hope you aren't talking about a 95 jeep, those auto trannys(most common) are bullet proof(japanese) and nothing is wrong with the 5spds either. Just sold my auto 93 with 150+k and it shifted like new. Toyotas are nice but for what you would pay for a decent jeep, you get a 250+k beat to hell yota.

The car you have now with snow tires. Someone probably said it already, but I didn't read the thread. I had snow tires on my S2000 and it was better than any SUV or AWD car. People really underestimate the effectiveness of snow tires....since most people haven't actually used them.
