I don’t think he made it.

They must do well in snow because there is a shit ton of them up here. Im just not a fan of their styling….not to mention they are labeled “granolas” and cars for ugly lesbians.

So, bought my wife a cutesy Volvo suv instead.  :lol:

:wall:

 

I was at a customer's recently and she had a sweet looking Volvo waggon.  I had not seen one like it before but would 100% get it for the wife . My wife has always loved wagons . Pretty sure her dream car would be the Griswold family truckster

straight from DU.   EDIT: holyhell DU site has tons of ads all over, guess they need the money    I refuse to put on winter tires because: - Democratic Underground

If you don’t put winter tires on your car it will make me crash 

The difference between winter tires and the vaxx is that using winter tires might actually prevent you from injuring someone else.

Winter tires are very common in northern VT & NH. When I lived south of the notches it wasn't very common. I have them here, but didn't when I lived in Ossipee.

See, for once it's obvious what the modus operandi is. Anywho, If you live in the snow and ice belt a dedicated winter tire will undoubtedly outperform an all season by far. Test have proven it. Braking on icy roads is not even close with a studded or even the new studless designs. There are some A-T's with the 3PMSF symbol that work well but most have the old M+S symbol that is a farce.

I had a set of Nokian WR3 or whatever they were called that were pretty good in the snow. But still didn't compare to dedicated snow tires. Where I grew up and lived most of my life in NH I never ran a winter tire. I can't think of many that I knew that did.  The roads are different down there. The road crews have to expose everything from the center of the road to the white line before going home.  Up here roads can be snow covered for weeks at a time :bc:

For sure. Back in the day the roads would be snow packed.

If cars still had antenna I would have just gone with a orange 76 gas station ball . I would have suggested some back window stickers but we'll you know lol

WINTER TIRES…

I refuse to put on winter tires because:
• It’s my car, my choice, my freedom.
• The effectiveness of winter tires is not proven, except by studies carried out by the manufacturers (like I’m supposed to trust them).
My neighbor Bob had an accident even after putting on winter tires.
• Some drivers are already on their 3rd set of tires, which proves their ineffectiveness.
• We do not know what the tires are made of.
• The tire manufacturers scare us with winter just to enrich themselves.
• In fact, I read on the internet that the tire giants invented snow and spread it at night when you sleep.
• If I have winter tires, the government can track me in the snow.

Educate yourself, open your eyes, stop being sheep!

This year, I say no to winter tires!

OMG, you can tell this was written for people like MC.

Do you think he had studded tracks or no studs.  Of course that was if he actually owned a snowmobile.

The least he could have done was adapted it for a snowmobile site by using studded vs no studs.
