Drove in moderate snow yesterday. Not bad with stock tires. I have read they get much worse the second winter. I have driven through a ton of snow in many vehicles, never on snow tires. I have found that conservative driving in snow has built alot of experience. I have had four wheel drive, rear wheel drive, front wheel drive, and it all came down to knowing your car, and its limits. Stability control is nice, but is terrible for getting out of deep snow, where you DO have to spin your tires to rock back and forth to get out of a hole you dug...
