Need a new AWD car

Asked by Aug 12, 2015 at 04:19 PM

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I currently drive a 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT
3.0 liter 24 valve v6. I bought this car about 4
months ago but I've come to accept the fact
that no matter how much I like the looks and
quickness of the car, it will not be a safe ride
as I live in Maine. Even in rain, with brand
new tires on, it handles terribly and gets
pushed all over the place. I'm looking to
upgrade into an AWD car or something that
is better in the rain and snow. I like speed, I
like turbos, and I like to have fun but I'm also
worried about having control of my car in
weather other than dry sunny days. I'm
coming to you experts to find out what kind
of cars you have in your mind when you
think of something that's quick but can still
be reliable in the winter. I appreciate this a
lot. All the research I've done is just showing
me cars that have been made recently (last
few years) and I just can't afford it. I'm only
20 years old and in school. I would like to
add that I would like to be able to mod the
car as well. I know my wants are very
specific, but I'm sure there's some cars, like
the wrx and Evo, that can meet the criteria
without being too pricey. Thanks very much!

I was going to recommend the Subaru WRX but you already mentioned it.
