Well, I am trying to find a good deal on a winter car.
I am thinking all wheel drive. I am also hoping for decent gas mileage.
Trying to get something between $3,500 and $8,500.

So I was looking at Subaru.
Both the '97 outback sport and possibly the '00 WRX wagon. And to a much lesser degree the outback legacy wagon.

I was looking at Audi, but the A4 Avants are still in upper teens.
Jetta wagon is a no go.

I should probably consider some SUVS...but I don't know much about that so....
I am trying to find something that can hold a good bit of stuff in the back.

I am searching Ebay and autotrader. I will be checking out any local car listing publications I can find laying around. I have checked a couple Subaru forums.

If anyone has some pointers of where to look or what to look for, I would appreciate the help. Also if anyone knows how to get into dealer auctions or purchase cars close to wholesale that would kick ass.

Thanks.
