Been in central ny area since friday, it has snowed every day around 5 inches or more at night. relatives live in a small town on a steep hill. Car had no problem handling the terrain, I did disable vdc when climbing up hills though. yesterday drove from saquoit to oneonta, then took 28 back to nj. Hit the snow storm in kingston about 30 cars crashed on both sides of the road, a few qc plates and trucks, car handled unplowed road smashingly once we got closer to nj it turned over to sleet also very stable, kept her mostly in 3/4 gear due to traffic. In nj turned over to rain/freezing rain nearly had some idiot run into me since he though he could drive through a snow bank with his chrysler minivan. He failed, big time. I only felt the car about to slip in the slush but just let off the accelerator, straigthened her out and then reapplied throttle and she was fine. snow tires plus awd + mountain roads = very impressive.
