I am in the market for a new car and need some input from you gentleman. I live in the ny/nj area and commute around 50 miles daily. Don't have to get it right now - can wait a few months. Initially, due to the snowy winters, I was looking specifically for an all-wheel drive car and Audi A5 seemed to fit the bill. However, a friend of mine told me dire stories about his A4 and it changed my outlook. The new Porsche truck is due out soon and it seems okay. I don't know too much about cars - would like some input about what to consider. Also, is an all-wheel drive necessary or will be okay w/o it?
