How does it handle in the rain and snow?

Asked by Sep 17, 2015 at 11:03 AM about the 2012 Kia Soul

Question type: General

My Soul does not handle well in the rain or snow. Lots of hydro planing and
sliding. And I live in ohio so snow/ice is inevitable.  A mechanic told me the
car just doesn't weigh very much and that's the problem. Before I go buy new
tires and give that a try, do you have experience or information that would
help? Thanks.

Get the set of new tires, and in the winter throw about three bags of sand in the back to help with the traction. The car is light and not many thing to do other then new tires and some weight...Good luck this winter and drive slow...
