Hello community,

I am a first time car buyer. I recently moved to Google Boston and was thinking of getting a car. My budget is 40K and I don't want to exceed that. Could you guys suggest something that will be reliable?

    For Boston winters you'll need a reliable awd. Nothing beats Subaru when it comes to awd

    accord 2.0 - fun to drive, well under 40k.

    for ice/cold weather consider the new Rav4 (doesn't have android auto though).
    Most/all Subaru vehicles are good and have all wheel drive

    Used (first cars get in small accidents etc), Japanese (for reliability, ideally assembled in Japan) except for Nissan and Mitsubishi, under 5yo, under 60k miles, 1-2 owners.
    Best bet - Toyota, Honda.
    Parking is tough in any big city so unless u need big car for kids look at smaller sedan (Civic etc) or smaller SUV.

    Subaru Outback (premium package). It's extremely reliable, good in the snow, and comfortable to drive. It also gets fairly decent gas mileage (depending on how you drive).

    Availability to charging?
    How often do you road trip?
    Are you willing to work on it?
    Do you enjoy cars or is it an appliance?
