Hello, My name is Josie, and I am a 22 year-old who has been saving up my money for a car for the past 5 years and am ready to buy. Since I am still young, I want to buy something fun and sporty. I have always LOVED the Ford Mustang, of all years. The only problem is that I live in Ottawa, Canada. Do you think its possible to drive this car around in the harsh Canadian winters? I read somewhere that its fine as long as you add weight to the trunk (bass speaker, bags of rice, etc.). What do you think? Thanks! Josie

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Josie, Thank you for writing into AskPatty! Congratulations on saving for a vehicle and meeting your goal!! To address your concern about the "right" vehicle to purchase in your area. You may want to think about a few key things such as; dependability, consumer reports, and WARRANTY! In my opinion you may want to look into an all wheel drive model, there are Kia and Hyundai models that have outstanding manufacturer warranty up to 100k/10yrs. Hope this Helps! A. J. Valle
