    suv depending on where you live and what the winters are like. If you have a mild winter then go car.

    Pathfinders and xterras are nice but I heard that they cause you alot of coin in maintnance as they get older.

    I concur with many people here. Depending on the winter and how much you are looking to carry around with you on a daily basis, go with a civic or coralla.

    Maybe an '01.

    Pretty sure most of them are still sitting between 15-25K depending on year/km's etc.

    I'd guess an IS would be no good for Mitchy though. Probably needs more room for things like surfboards and fat girls... :shrug:

    I'll sell you my forklift for $100, it's got a custom flat black paint job with red flames done by Elgranto, and it's a Yota to boot!

    Like Paul said, a Subaru would be a good bet.

    A WRX wagon or a Legacy.

    a 4 runner is the clear choice

    the prices in NS are out to lunch though. 7 grand for one with 250k on it. in AB you can get mint diesel models with 80k for $8-9k. steering wheel on the wrong side though
