So my 98 GMC Jimmy died and I need a new car. I'm looking for an 05-06 models that has the following.
-AWD or switch on/off 4X4
-good trunk space / wagon.
Now, i dont want to spend 40K on a car, my budget is 20-25K and for an 05 is reasonable. I've had enough of domestic cars, so this time i need an Japanese car.
matrix has AWD, cheap parts but they are due for a new model soon.
Honda Element is not bad, again, due for a new model release soon
subaru is great with a 30K wagon but parts and getting a shop to service will be hard and expensive.
Mazda 3 sport.. i dont' think they have 4X4....or AWD....
CRV came out with a new model but i don't think i can afford them... esp when i need 4X4
I ruled out Saturn, Kia and Hyduai...
any suggestions would be great.
