I want to get a new car

I've been driving my 2003 nissan sentra for over 6 years now. I got it when I graduated from college. I think its time for a quality of life upgrade.

I want something I can take on an adventure. AWD or 4WD is a must. Something I can use to carry skiis up a snowy mountain mountain passes. Something with ground clearance to take me over bumpy roads to the mountain bike trailheads. Something with cargo space to carry camping gear. Also, something to make the commute to work in.

My budget is about 25k. Right now, I'm strongly biased towards the subaru outback. Also considering a Honda CR-V or a Nissan pathfinder.

Any suggestions?!?!?!

kia sportage is a good value at roughly 18,5

or maybe a forester or mazda cx-5

Yeah, for the base model. By the time I get it loaded up, its about the same I'd pay for an outback with similar specs, plus its a KIA. Mazda CX-5 looks pretty good. Pretty close to the subie on price, weight/power, clearance height, storage capacity. The kia loses in almost every category.

I would go for subaru outback or just get a light duty truck like tacoma,frontier, ranger and or few more out there. Truck bed have more room and would be better for outdoor world like camping.You can go off-roadding deeper in the woods, haul junk, carry firewoods and many more!
I am glad that I got tacoma 4.0 v6 trd offroad over wrx because it takes me everywhere! I even joined off-road club and it is so much fun!
Good luck with decisions man.

try and find a car that has been leased for 1 year and is being sold by a delearship. usually you can get full warranty on them and the price will be about 20-40% lower.

Get a Toyota BT86. It's the coolest car that anyone is ever going to make.

You can't really go wrong with a scoobydoo as long as it's been serviced properly IMO. They are a bit juicy if flogged (by european standards anyway).
The flat four engine is awesome.

I had a 97 Subaru Legacy Outback... back when there were Impreza and Legacy models.

I was impressed with the extra space, the gas mileage and the fact that it was usually just me and the snow plows out when the winter was harsh.


But when I went to drive a Forrester with my Wife, when she was looking I felt it handled stiffer, not as smooth....

Did not buy.
