On inclines, slush on the highway, packed snow, fresh powder i just plowed thru. I got lots of surprised looks and complients when i came thru parking lot at killington. Everyone was asking if it was AWD etc...

All in all i am very pleased with the 1 in the snow and the fold down seats...great summer and winter car!


Sorry no before pics...
but all cleaned up
Thanks for the report back. One of the main reasons I didnt buy the 1 last year was that I was worried about snow/ice/rain etc. Glad to hear it's not even an issue with the Blizzak's on.

ever try paying car insurance in nyc? its about 4000 a year where as in jersey i pay 1k.

I work in nyc but i keep my nj drivers license and nj permanent address with my family. Much better for taxes, ins and all other financial aspects. Hell i even grocery shop in nj once a month at costco!

nj driving is special.... jug handles and all. You really can't beat how well the NJ turnpike operates compared to the rest of 95 like CT and NY.
