So I found out from where I'm interning/working that they may offer me a position to keep me at the plant and not risk losing me.... if this does happen and I do take the offer here is what I would be faced with:

School 2 days a week, work 2/3 days a week.... the issue is that the two are about 150 miles apart... the company said if it happens I would get a salary and they would pay for the rest of my schooling.... but did not mention paying for travel/mileage.

So I'm faced with this choice (I am NOT going to buy new):

1.) Lightly used hybrid that will get my 45+ mpgs to help with the cost of travel if it is on me, or if they give me $XXX per mile it means more to my pocket


2.) Lightly used AWD sedan to help deal with the miles in a Wisconsin winter that has some zip to it since MPG isn't a huge concern

Also I DO NOT want a truck or SUV, a want a car no matter what and would like to stay around
15k and 50,000~ miles

Option 1 choices seem to be:
Civic Hybrid
Altima hybrid or Camry hybrid (neither is that great for MPG)

Option 2 choices are:
WRX (not and STI)
Mitsu Lancer GTS (new style - but I hear bad things about DSM)
Infiniti G35x
Audi a4/a6/S4 (I am scared if they are reliable as I would like)
300c AWD
Charger AWD
Jaguard X-type

Its a lot to choose from, I'm not picky.... but just want the most bang for my buck to fit within either of those two categories
Suggestions welcome but remember:
AWD sedan - looks good and has some zip
50k miles give or take
RELIABLE! no headaches until I hit at least 100k on it.
or AWESOME gas milage

Thanks everybody!
