question of the day what s the best snow vehicle

Today's question comes from Luke Procter. It's about snow. I saw snow once. It was cold, I didn't like it. So, just listen to Luke, as I have no idea. "Cars in snow suck. They get stuck. And the engine overheats. And they get stuck. And with Mother Nature (that bitch) dropping another half meter of the white shit on us Canadians (and northern Americans), I've been thinking about getting a different vehicle. I've currently got an ‘01 Impala. It only got stuck three times last night. Snow tires or not, the damn thing gets hung-up on snow over four inches deep. So, the question is, what's your favorite current or fantasy vehicle for driving through the snow and showing Mother Nature's who's boss? Right now, I've been given a real solid bitch slap." I'll just say Unimog, cause they look neat. You?

    I have a Saab 9-3 with brand new Blizzaks. I don't think it handles very well in the snow at all, however I have the presence of mind to keep it on the road. On the other hand, my father has an old 900 with Gislaveds. I have driven the car quite a few times in some bad storms, and I've never been able to get the thing to slide, no matter how hard I tried. Tires are a big deal, however the driver is an even more important part of the equation.

    I may be biased as its the only AWD car I've owned, but my Honda Element with the "real time AWD" is a little champ in the snow. Its definatly more surefooted than the in-laws assortment of Chevy SUVs.
