Any 4-wheel drive vehicle is probably your best bet. Here in Alaska, you see alot of Ford 4x4 trucks and Subarus. Also, go for a heavier vehicle. And make sure the treads on your cheap car's snow tires are good. To be even safer, just invest in a set of studded tires for the winter. My Sky will definately not see the light of day during the winter here in Anchorage. It'll be in the garage with a cover on it (hibernating) until Spring.....................
