My Camry is about to die at 132k miles. It has been good to me but it is no denying, I need a new car. I'd prefer certified preowned but I'd only have 9k to put down max. Might be helped out by fam as I graduate college soon so those gifts will be coming around. So I suppose they might match it. Side note I live in the NE, so weather is pretty shitty and unpredictable so looking for AWD only. Thanks.

Only 132k on a camry and its dying? You should probably look into learning how to maintain a car before getting a new one. My 03 350z has 171k miles and runs as strong as it ever has.

I've done great maintaining my car. It needs repairs that cost as much as the car due to other people who share with me when I'm at school and have no need for it. Oh and it's much older than you think 98' Camry. I believe it was in 2 accidents before I got it.

Can't go wrong with a 2002 Subaru WRX, if you want a cheap, fun, awd, and reliable car.

This man KNOWS..  Seriously though, I've been contemplating about getting one myself.

May your neighbors respect you, trouble neglect you, angels protect you, and heaven accept you.

You should consider a BMW 325i E30 Coupe.  You can find a very clean model under 5k and have some money to spend on her.

Check out R3vlimited.com if built right and you are definitely in budget that car will last up to 300k miles

Well, I think 9K is pretty low to get certified pre-owned genuine and reliable cars and that too with low miles on it.  But nevertheless, I think you should check out inventories of Auto parts store online that deal with certified used cars. There are fair possibilities that you will get a pretty handy deal.

Yes, I too agree with Frozzy, an Impreza will do wonders as per your requirement and is a great AWD car with good handling. Also the handling will be better than most AWD sedans and should do quite well over the years if kept properly. Take references from different dealers and sites like Cox auto parts, automotix.net, worldcarparts, autocatch.com and cars trovit for pricing and comparisons.
