We are a middle aged couple who deeply Hate NY and wanting to relocate to a nice, healthy, comfortable, country living state. We are looking for no ice cold winters, low crime, nice scenery (mountain views), friendly atmosphere, employment in the auto industry, with a lower cost of living than the rip off state of NY. Any help or info would be great! Thanks....

Car dealerships and auto repair shops are in the auto industry. So is the Chrysler Arizona Proving Ground (APG) in Yucca.

We live in a nice town called Spanish Fork. Our crime isn't bad, as this is a fairly small town. There is crime everywhere, though. Don't know of any auto industry in Utah at all. If you hate cold winters, though, you should scratch utah off your list. We moved here from Texas in '08, and couldn't believe how dry and cold it is here in the winter. We are soon to go back south. The views here are breathtaking, without a doubt. We have traveled a lot, and always said this area had the scenery. However, you will pay for it. Everything here is expensive. We are retired, so we have to be vigilant about what we buy. I can only offer advice on the weather in Texas, and Arizona. Texas is not retiree friendly on the taxes, but there are areas of the state that are stunning, and the weather is nice in a lot of the state. By the coast, though, be aware of hurricanes. We went through quite a few, and beat the odds, luckily. Arizona is very hot in the summer. We traveled all around there when I was younger on vacation, and all I remember was heat. My wife and I have been through there numerous times, and it is still, hot. We haven't decide where we are headed to, but if it is Texas, I would look at Giddings, Waco, any of the Hill Country ( Lano, Fredricksburg), or the Piney Woods ( Lake Livingston).

You forgot Nevada. We are right next door to Arizona and Utah.
