How does the vehicle navigate snow and do you get stuck without the feature
of AWD?

2 Answers

My Toyota (Front wheel drive) is pretty good in light snow, but I gave gotten stuck -- but only when the snow is higher than front bumper, once it gets 'lifted' the slightest bit on the undercarriage, forget it. Ice is another story, black ice occurs often and I have lost control on one occasion, fortunately no damage just scared the S*** out of me when it spun out. I live in Calif. but in an area with moderate snowfall but it thaws during day and forms black (clear ice is more accurate) that is invisible on black pavement. I have learned that bridges freeze over before the concrete freeway also, THAT'S when you have to be really careful

There were rear wheel drive years before there were 4WD or AWD and people seemed to do just fine if they knew how to drive in the stuff, VW bugs did very well back then, my Dad used his corvair as a snow plow one year so we could get to the main road. Heck I put a couple bags of concrete in the trunk of my Ford Maverick and what they called Walnut tires on it and went anywhere I wanted even with the slightly modified V8 engine. So I guess it all depends on if you grew up driving on the stiff or not.
