Front wheel drive and anti-lock brakes are good things. AWD may help in deep snow, but not on ice. AWD doesn't help you stop in time--that relies on lower speed and driver reaction time.

When I lived in ND I always had all season tires and never had problems. Here in Colorado Springs it's better to have winter tires though because there's some big hills here. When I move back to ND next month I'll be driving a rwd Lexus so it should be fun. But yeah any vehicle with all season or winter tires will be fine in ND.

Thank you all so very much! We've decided to just tow the little BMW with the working heater and AC back. It needs some work on an injector and some odds and ends - so will be looking for a good mechanic down the road.

We're getting ready - only a week and a half to go. I'll print your responses out for Bob to look at! Thanks again. You'll soon be seeing a 26' truck rolling into Medina!

Whoooooopppppeeeeeeeee!

Most Montanans drive Subaru's - AWD or pickup trucks.

Well we solved that whole issue today - got a 99 Plymouth Grand Voyager. We can throw snow tires on it, some bags of sand (or whatever) in the back and still have room for us and the 4 dogs to travel around ND in comfort all year long. Great heater and AC! Cassette tape stinks - but we'll fix that.

The house is starting to look bare - and hopefully my Granddaughter will take our bedroom set and some other big stuff we don't want. (She and her fiance just moved into their own house). Tomorrow I put the BMW's on Craigslist and someone wants to look at our sailboat Friday or Saturday. Cross everything you can - please

That has nothing to do with it. Subaru's are great in the snow, but so are old caddies! Go to Jackson Hole if you want to see Kali yuppies getting stuck with their H2's.
