I am thinking of a Subaru Crosstrek. If my Matrix is still running when I move to CO (in three years) then I'll get the Crosstrek then, and will get it sooner if the Matrix buys the farm. I want a hardy AWD wagon, the smaller the better. Wish the Fit came in AWD.

Get the Impreza instead of the Crosstrek. The Crosstrek is basically an Impreza with a lift and a $3K higher price tag.

Can the rear of the Impreza be folded down flat in a hatchback model? I've been meaning to get over to the Subaru place to check. I actually don't like the NASCAR look of the Crosstrek.

I do not know for sure about the newest ones. I had a 2003 Impreza hatch that the seats could be folded almost flat. There was a slight incline to them.

My Matrix can fold everything flat except the driver's seat. You can get all sorts of things into that little car. It's the main feature I want in a car besides AWD. Oh, and the cheapest car that's the cheapest to run that runs like iron.

I've been in Mr. Money Mustache a lot lately and have been going through reading some older posts.

This one is relevant to the discussion: All Wheel Drive Does Not Make You Safer

I tend to agree with a lot of the points he makes regarding AWD vs FWD and how tires make the biggest difference.

I agree 100% with this:

We know that summer tires and even all season tires are death traps compared to snow tires. I’m serious about this: there is a night and day difference in snow grip between all season tires (sometimes referred to by driving professionals as “no-season tires”) and good snow tires, because of the different rubber compounds and tread patterns.

For those of you that use snow tires. Do you have a separate set of wheels and snow tires you mount on your car for the winter months and change out for all season or performance tires in the summer? I couldnt see someone wanting to run a dedicated snow tire all year.
