Same problem with my 2002 Focus wagon. 25 or 30 max on even just a light dusting of snow. That was with all-season tires. Snow tires (Blizzaks) made the vehicle tolerable, but even so we favored our other vehicle whenever it snowed. There is actually a class-action lawsuit against Ford over the problem.
