Hows your car handle in SNOW!?

Hehe, that's right... how does your car handle in this terrible snow! We just had our first big snow, which is sadly only a few inches, but people are going crazy here in Pennsylvania, USA.

I have a 1998 bmw 328i and even with winter tires that thing is like on skates! Every single time I creep to a stop sign I skid and ABS kicks in. (Annoying!)

What cars do you all drive and is it just me or do sport cars really not perform well...

here in Québec, if a car is not able to handle snow, it is not on the market, so we all have capable cars.. lol

All the cars I've ever owned were front wheel drive manuals...can't beat a stick shift for snow!

I don't drive a car, I drive a Jeep. It handles rather well in the snow even for having balding all-terrains on it. I'll be happier when I get snow tires on tomorrow though.

And I agree with deez, stick shift in the snow is soo nice!

Use the opportunity of snow to practice your drift, talkvb.

If there is snow outside, I don't go anywhere.. Though I think the last time we had snow was 2003 or 2004.

I've driven everything we own in the snow/ice aside from the street bikes...never had much of a problem in it.

My first experience driving in the snow was in one of these. Positive traction is a life saver. >) Matter of fact I've always felt "safer" in a rear-wheel drive no matter what the conditions. I'd much rather deal with over steer any day of the week, but I have no problems with front-wheel drive...just hate having to adjust my driving style for it. ><

Its the white stuff they talk about on the 6 o'clock news.. Like the:

The snowpack in the Sierra Nevada is not meeting the average requirement so that there may be water shortages in Southern California continuing into 2008 and 2009.
