From the Forum: The Right Wheels for Getting Upstate?

  |  July 12, 2013

Folks, a reader as posted over in the Forum, asking for some car advice. Yep, sometimes people need car advice when they’re taking up residence in the north and have gotten around by subway for years before.

Here’s the note:

“Hey all. My partner and I are in the process of purchasing a home about 15 minutes outside of Livingston Manor in Sullivan County. We’ll also need to buy a car to trek up there from Brooklyn! I keep going back and forth about whether we need to get an AWD car or if FWD would be sufficient. Since we’re in the city, we don’t want a large SUV, but if we go with AWD, the options are pretty limited (Subaru Impreza, Toyota Matrix). Thoughts? Is FWD with snow tires enough?”

Readers, can you help? Answer here.
