Well I gues we have snow now, about 6" and 4 inches two seperate days. First day the streets & such were only "rutted" from traffic, no real plowing. The car handled well, for a light machine. It never slipped or gave real problems driving. Only if I changed lanes (climbing "snowbanks" between ruts) or made a turn in deep stuff did I have any yaw. Regardless the car was responsive and responded to steering quickly. It also braked the best of any non-abs car I've driven in the snow. Takeoffs were ok, used the tiptronics in 2nd to start out and kept the rpm down.
