My parents are looking for a winter car. They want to buy something used, preferably in the range of or under 10k. It will be the car taken to the snow every year. They live in the SF Bay Area. This wont be a car used primarily in the off season, but they will need to be able to get to the snow before needing a car to navigate it (they travel to the slopes at least a half dozen times every season). So obviously a AWD car is needed, but what would be best? I have some ideas, but I want some imput. Also, recommendations would be appreciated for the proper tire (ie a snow tire that will last longer than 1 season on the roads to the snow). Thanks.
