It aint so much the snow ,although having a class 6 road for a drive way it does make it interresting, it'* those damn wind and/or ice storms it'* not uncomon to have storm that takes out power for a few days to a weeks time, right in the middle of record low temps. like I said......I love it.

Actually, these boats hadle quite well in the snow. We had a big storm dump about 8 inches on us in an afternoon a couple of years ago, and I trudged right through. They are heavy enough, FWD, and I'm betting the stock 60'* help too.

They ain't 4WD, so you gotta take it easy, but I've never had an issue with snow in my Bonne. And only a couple of times where ice made it a little nerve racking, but both of those times that little bit of extra power helped pull me out of any trouble.

Concur. Ive driven my Bonne like it was summer on some of the worst winter roads trying to slide and couldn't. These cars are glued to the road. Worst ever was in town, and the roads were a sheet of ice. It stopped fine, just had a rough time getting started again.

With that said, I drove the bonne down one road, that i never had traction the whole way down it. The snow was so high it was hitting my floor boards the whole time. It just followed the tracks of the guy in front of me. I could turn the wheel a half turn in either direction and it wouldn't matter, just kept trackin'.

Biggest thing I'd suggest is not to get in a snowball/iceball fight too near your 92-95 bonne..

Someone whacks the front fender and you see it crack...lol

No..it never happened to me.. I see so many cracked ones though.

OK, no snow up here nor any planned for the next week, I checked the Weather Channel (99508 zip) I have seen my what my baby can do in the snow, and what it'll plow thru (very heavy, good tires and trac control). I cannot wait to wake up and see a white parking lot
