The only imported cars he'd buy would be a Benz or subaru. A Ford is the best investment I told him

Mazda and ford have worked together for a long time. You wouldn't be going far off of a ford going with a mazda.

so they settled on a car.
2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 28,000 miles
they wanted her to have AWD because of snow and the new england weather. This has been the same for myself ive always had a 4wd or awd vehicle. RWD is not a option with the snow and all. heres a pic they sent me.

FWD would have been fine. AWD is just a crutch lol. Looks like a nice car though, hope it serves her well.

too bad it has to be newer then an 08 , cause ive had 2 plymouth breeze's one was a 96 and the other was a 98 , both awesome cars and took a really good beating , lets just say i took it everywhere , ice fishing, bush parties , beer runs , i once had to call 2 -4x4s , to come pull me outta a trail they said that i shouldnt have even made the first 20 feet , lol

Yea better in the snow. To a limit tho that car can\'t do more than 6\". It can\'t go thru blocked driveway. The subi can be launched and just go no tire spin. As for the ranger goodluck
