So now I'm the proud owner of a 2013 Subaru Outback (Premium with the Weather Package). So I have all wheel drive, heated seats, heated side mirrors, de-icers on the wiper blades, and all weather mats.

Enjoy! Before we moved to NJ in 2000, we traded in my 1990 Taurus for a 2000 Outback Limited with all those bells and whistles. It was a really reliable car and ChiliSpouse felt more confident of my safety driving in snow. I did, too. Very comfortable ride, easy handling, and virtually no repair bills. And great for hauling various and sundry things from loads of mulch to large dogs and lumber. Traded it in in 2010 and still miss it. Don't need the cold-weather options now, though.

Honda Fit gets good mileage and cost less than the Subaru did 10 years earlier, but that's about all I can say about it. CS's new (used) 2012 F250 diesel super duty regular-cab truck with no options on it that he uses for towing his track car is more comfortable on the road.
