Vehicle opinions needed!
November 21, 2013 at 8:39 PM

Come tax time I'm looking to get a new vehicle. I currently have a Nissan Altima, I do love my car but after spinning out twice this morning because of snow/ice covered roads ( just moved to CO from TX) I've come to the conclusion that I need something 4 wheel drive. I'm leaning towards a Jeep Cherokee Sport but am open to other suggestions. I want something that's moderate in size but not huge and gets decent gas mileage. Thanks!

    What year jeep!!?!

    I drive an AWD VW passat wagon! Love it.
    Hubby drives a lifted Jeep liberty! He loves it. He owned a Cherokee previously. It wasn't good on gas & didn't have enough head room for him. He's tall. But it was older so that explains some gas mileage.

    Four wheel drive is good but you also need snow tires.

    lWe have a Jeep Commander and  a Dodge Journey. Love both. Better mileage with the Dodge.

    I agree with the statement about headroom.  DF is 6'6 and we need the Commander for head room!

    Yeah, I bought new tires just before moving here and told them I wanted tires that would do well in snow but not sure if they actually qualify as snow tires.

    Thanks! I'm 5'8 so don't need a lot of head room but don't wanna be squished either lol.
