cheap reliable and ugly are what I'm looking for

She drove a Trailblazer a while back and we put close to 100k miles on it. ****** was sound yo Only issue we ever had was the heated seat only had Nuclear mode. Serious, that **** would burn your *** and was unusable. Shoulda kept that rig

Used exploders are cheap and semi reliable.

I bought one for my niece that had a 5.3 in it. Damn, that thing had some snap. It was an '08, and would really haul ***. She's still driving it daily in the snow belt.

thought about that. Our cheap-*** CFO drives an 11 yo Exploder and has taken care of it like a child. Seriously, thing has 200k+ miles and no squeeks or rattles. It's almost like new off the showroom floor. I keep offering him $2k for it as a joke and he responds "there is no amount of money you could offer to get this rig".

I might just steal it

I could probably just purchase anything and be good to go. She'll only put 2k miles/year on it.

It would cheaper to hire a Canadian to drive her around for the winter.

For a Honda, look at a CRV. Or you could go GMC Typhoon. It's AWD.
