You guys want to have fun in the snow.
Try driving a 5 speed Titanium with the Titanium handling package tires.
The Pilot 3 summer performance tires are unreal on dry or even wet roads.
But let it see a snowflake or worse several inches of them and its an adventure just trying to get moving on an snow/ice covered road.
A slight slope is a virtual impossibility and gives the TC system fits.
I don't blame the car or the driver, its ALL the tires fault.
I'm an old man who drove 2 different Rangers for nearly 13 years before this car.
Both had 4 bangers and 5 speeds, but in the close to 500,000 miles I put on them.
I never had a problem in snow because I always made sure I had good AT type tires on them all the time.
I was looking around for a new set of rims to put some decent winter tires on for winter.
But I didn't find any I liked soon enough so now I'm stuck with sliding it around corners
till I can get it to bare pavement.
