Yup. Just Weds. I passed three RWD vehicles spinning on the snow. My FWD and traction got me right by. I love RWD but it does have its limitations - like a budget to have an RWD for fun and an FWD for snow. Just not that rich.

So were you driving the SSE or the GXP?

The GXP.

But it really doesn't matter. The SSE has done just as well in the snow, whether in Lansing or Morgantown. I just bought the GXP so worried the extra horsepower might make me spin out, but I was on compressed snow and no problems.

I prefer 4x4 for driving in the snow. FWD just doesn't cut it when you have to punch through 3' drifts.

For sure. But I tend to avoid those 3' ers!!! The Avalanche is a great truck btw. Love the look.

No. Main reason: The Bonneville'* title is in my file desk!

Yes! I love my Park Ave, but I want a Commodore so bad I can taste it! Although, truth be told, I'd rather have the larger Caprice version, as long as it gets the same motor. Hopefully, they'll be smart enough to use the Series 3 N/A and */C for lower-range motors...
