RWD cars aren't generally the best for snow. Snow tires are pretty much a must and it takes some practice to handle the vehicle.

Snow?

go to your local tire store, inquire about snow tires for this car.

Report back, when able...

Buy a truck if you want to drive in snow.

2wd trucks are even worse in snow. Buy a fwd car, awd car, or 4x4.

Even with a 4x4 truck you should put weight over the rear axle in winter, like sandbags.

With Blizzak or Michelin X-ice tyres you can drive a RWD in the snow. I've done plently driving in a BMW M3 in the snow. The new cars have lots of traction systems built in, even if they are RWD.

Agree :thumbs:

Grew up in northern Utah, where snow is a seasonal event. Drove many miles in the snow in all kinds of vehicles. Though, I have to say that an old VW Beetle (RWD) with good snow tires and chains will get you a lot of places in the snow (and get gassed by the leaky heater manifolds too B-) ). :P :wacko:

YMMV

Traction control? FWD cars, AWD cars and even my 4x4 Jeep have traction control. The Jeep also has front and rear lockers but those are for rocks. :) YAY ROCKS!

For a beginner snow driver, I think a good set of winter tires and FWD or AWD is the way to go. I grew up where it snows... Granted I'm not a rally car driver either. Graduate to something more when you know how to drive in snow. Or not.

Just to note winter tires make a world of difference no matter what kind of car you drive:

but even as you can see in this vid 4x4 helps

and other.. not sure if either have winter tires:

Fun cars generally aren't "winter cars" unless you have a fun car like me. ;) We have a friend with a 370z nissan that doesn't see rain, let alone snow. He has an old celica for daily driving.
