Ideas for a vehicle

I have alot of requirements and I don't know if it's actualy possible to find "the perfect vehicle" but here I go.
- good capabilities in the snow/ice etc
- fairly good gas mileage
- fairly powerful
- prefferable 4 wheel/mudding type capabilities
- all around good vehicle (obviously)
- good quality vehicle (not needing much maintenence, obviously things break when four wheeling or mudding but holds together well)

If you have any ideas for a good vehicle that matches at least some of these requirements it would be much appreciated.

No rectriction on car vs suv etc. Just any idea.
Thanks!

4wd and good gas milage dont always mix together well....make sure you get a 4wd not an AWD because AWD will eat more gas than the 4wd

OHH OH I GOT IT!!!!!!! Mitsubishi Galant VR-4. Its a sick car, 4WD, and they make insane rally cars out of it. Best of all, you will be the only one in your area to own one.

they are still small 4 bangers so even if they are not efficient for their displacement they will still be good with feul. I dont remember where but today i saw a galant vr-4 rally for sale. they are amazing cars.
