I would like an AWD rather then a RWD. 2010 is the lowest I'll go I think... also needs to be under 45k KM. This will be my daily driver, and I will use it in winter. all I'm planning to do to it is add tints, if it already has it well then...
I'm all set
Dude, don't bother with an AWD... you don't it. The 2WD versions all have a very sophisticated traction/stability program that will not let you get bent out of shape (too badly).. at least not any more than you'll experience in an unexpected situation (AWD or not). Plus, consider that for the other 45 weeks during the year that aren't covered in snow/slush/ice.. you've got to power 2 additional wheels and consume more gas (not to mention the added unspring weight of the AWD system suffering steering-feel). 2WD & a good set of snow tires will keep you safe.
