    I thought fwd and 4wd were the same thing? Does f not stand for four?

    FWD with snow tires is usually pretty good in the snow. If you wouldn't use 4WD very often, go with the FWD.

    These cars have the Eco-broke engines.  Stay away.

    Personally i wouldn't buy either.i would buy a Rav 4 or Honda cvr if your looking for a suv.Read the reviews before you consider buying anything and make sure it comes with a half decent warranty.All wheel is the best way to go especially if you live in the northern states.

    I would take the one with the lower miles.  I have a 4wd vehicle and never have to use it in 4wd.  I live in southwest PA

    You didn't give the actual price, but while the 4WD is probably a better choice.  But with 62K miles on a 3 year old car you are likely going to be asking for trouble.  

    Which ever car you end up getting, especially if it is the 4WD model.  Before you agree to the deal, get it inspected by an Independent Mechanic.

    I wouldn't buy either, but given that choice I'd buy the one with lower miles, especially if it has a complete maintenance history, because it is still under the bumper-to-bumper warranty for 4,000 more miles and the powertrain warranty for another 28,000 miles. 4WD doesn't make a car any safer in the snow if you are not a good driver in snowy conditions to begin with.

    Well, since you live in Michigan, I'd go with the 4WD.
