my 2wd compass is AWFUL in the snow. it is terrible going up hills. hoping to get some snow tires on her in the next few weeks though. pretty sad when my little pontiac sunfire handles better than my compass! def kicking myself for not getting the 4 wheel drive model.

We had an ice storm just a few weeks ago here in oklahoma. The only thing that made me wish for the 4wd was getting out of my parking spot at work. Other than that, my car handled well enough. The traction control kicked in quite a bit. All in all not too bad.
