Have you looked into the newer Volvo wagons? The V60 cross country looks nice, and would probably be great in the winter too

I live in Wisconsin and we have snow here. Did I mention SNOW lol. I have a Chevy Cruze. This is my second one. The first one was in a horrible accident with my son driving. The car saved his life. I did not hesitate to buy another. FANTASTIC in snow with stock tires. Absolutely fantastic. You could easily get one for that price.

All Wheel Drive versions of the Dodge Charger or Magnum or Chrysler 300C? Here's an autotrader search within 200 miles of Portland Maine and under $15K. I would have ordered the AWD version of the 300C for my mother in 2006 if it weren't on restriction then. We were happy with her RWD 300C—I still have it.

I am considering a Charger as well. Probably be between a Charger and a ATS.

Compromise and buy the best vehicle I have ever owned (and regret selling all the time): Toyota FJ Cruiser. I lived in Idaho and it was a monster in the snow with locking center and A trac. I would rather have a 75k mile FJ than a brand new subaru......

The FJ is a great vehicle but I already have a Land Rover LR4 with center and rear lockers. It's a tank and one of the best off roaders I have ever had. I'm looking for a car at this time.

Acura TL sh-awd, manual. Some of the earliest years are towards your price range. Quick, reliable, pretty decent AWD system.

The RL sh-awd is bigger but you love the manual.

Yeah.. I dont see ATS 2.0T, Jaguar or FCA anything as reliable. Good cars, just reliability not a strength of theirs.
