Focus in snow
So today was the first time I've driven my focus in the snow. I was impressed by how it reacted in the snow( no traction control). It never lost traction or slid. Does anyone else feel this way about there focus in the snow[woot]

Mine is epic in the snow. I use snow tires.

Mine's pretty good too, even without snow tires. I only lost traction once because I turned too fast.

my 07 sedan was great in the snow, never had an issue. my 03 with no interior sucks ass! back end wants to walk everywhere

I was impressed because I heard so many people complaining about the back end walking around but mine didn't .

I drove it up a monutain to go snowboarding last year with a bad valve and near-bald tires lol. I had to chain up once the snow got to about 5" though, while going up the mountain. 4-5" on the commute to work was no problem.

needess to day, mines a BEAST in the snow :P

that's one of the many reasons I have a 4wd f150. The only time the car gets driven in the snow is if it snows while I am working or starts while I'm out somewhere else,otherwise the truck gets to play. The focus is ok in the snow,but I like the truck better.
