by the way..... how's your xB in snow? wait, what am I thinking, you're in houston, of course you don't get snow :B..... haha well, I'll tell you what, the xA is a tank in snow... quite amazing. there was this one time where the roads were just covered with like two inches of ice, and a nice cover of snow to hide it all, so everyone stopped on it lol. we took off, and that thing just didn't slide or spin it's wheels on that ice.... the cars behind us were not so fortunate lol.....

unless you put your parking brake on and floor it......(ah.....remembering back to last winter.....lol)

that's because the 1.5L engine only puts about 89hp to the ground...not enough to spin the tires in any condition. LOL!!!!

lol that's true, but Toyota's done a great job tuning that little engine... [poke] Ford for not doing the same with our SPI's and Zetecs

i loved my little 1.5, it was enough to move my little box unless i was going up a steep upgrade. found out in colorado that it doesn't like those roads.

haha that is so true..... taking I-15 up to orem (bout a half hour drive...) doesn't exactly work well, especially when you get headwinds...... I can hit about 80-85 unless I'm getting headwinds, in which then it'd be about 75-76ish lol

That sucks.

My son and I enjoy going to some of the smaller car shows in the area, but I would like to hit at least one of the larger shows while we are living in WA. They just had Hot Import Nights a couple months ago. I couldn't go 'cause I already had plans.
