Driving in the snow
 
This is my first winter in my PT Cruiser 2006 limited edition. We have had a couple of snow storms already this year but I haven't driven the car yet because I was in an accident last winter and am still feeling a little freaky about driving in the snow especially since I have no idea how this car will handle in the snow. My questions is.....how does it go? ( and yes I have good tires):eek:

:) Hi
Well, I have driven my PT in the snow and it works just great. :1st:
I have 4 Toyo 15" snow tires and it's like driving a little snowmobile. I was passing cars/vans/trucks sliding down hills backwards. :D
The secret is taking it easy and not rushing things.;)
:lightbulb: And the other secret is using "snow tires". All season radials do not work that well in the snow. (I have a set that I swap when the weather gets nice again.)
Ask my neighbour and his Mazda Van that was parked at the bottom the hill where I live. He has a couple of small kids and I offered to to take them anywhere if there was an emergency.

Oklahoma City here - a 2006 Touring.
Last year when we got a little ice and snow, my low-profile performance tires wouldn't go up a shalllow grade. :(
**So, I put the all-season Bad Years back on, and no problem all winter!
:dance:

Completely agree.
Everything - accelerating, braking, turning - just do them S L O W L Y...
