Three inches of heavy, dense snow today, so I finally got a chance to do the driveway test (130 ft uphill). It was effortless. I did a leisurely 5 mph drive from a stop, no problems, no loss of traction that I could detect. Granted, the sticky snow is easier to grip on, and there was no ice below the snow, so the hardest test is yet to come. But, my previous FWD car would have needed a running start and would have burned rubber half way up to make it, if it made it at all.
