matmatician Yeah, we are too!!

I took mine across the biggest pass in WA in the worst snowstorm we've seen this year on all season tires with no chains... Took it like a boss. Turns out the chains we took were too big so we just went up with them off.

Focusblackzx5 Today in Québec, Canada : snowstorm of 18 inches.


My brother and I went on the highway in my focus and when I took an exit to return to our home, I was not able to see more then 20 feets in front of me and I lost control of the car. The traction control saved us from injuries and the car itself. It only did a 180 degree turn and the car slide on a distance of around 20-25 feets . After that I desactivated it because I was stuck in a 12-14 inches snow bath, slammed the gas and I was able to get out after 4-5 seconds at full trottle. Was on the highway so no time to wait there...

This car is amazing in winter, was the first time loosing control of my car in 3 years of driving.

Glad my brother and I are allright

WiscoGTI FWIW anything with snow tires in snow will do reasonably well.

Let it SNOW!!!

Even with a performance tire on my 2001 ZTS she really goes good in the snows. If it wasn;t for the white knucklers that slow things to a craw, I'd fly in it. 168,000 miles.... still28.7 MPG around town,cold morning starts kind of kill the GM in the winter. I LOVE my FF.
