Re: Winter driving the stang
I have been driving my Mustang for 7 years now and I haven't had too much trouble with it. There are times where I slide around, but most of the time, the car handles fine. I've only had one incident where I thought I was going to hit a mailbox or end up in a ditch and that was because I was trying to go up a hill that was nothing but a sheet of ice. This was due to the fact that Oklahomans are idiots and they don't understand the concept of putting salt on the streets to melt the ice (and also, my parents thought my inexperience didn't help since I was 21 at the time). Since you probably see snow and ice a lot more than we do, I'm guessing road crews do a much better job of clearing the roads. I know when I lived in Illinois (where they see a lot more snow and ice than in Oklahoma), I never had trouble because they cleared the roads well. You just have to drive slowly and don't take the car through deep snow or else you will get stuck. I am actually about to say goodbye to my Mustang to get a FWD car because I don't want to drive it in bad weather. It can be done though, especially if you have workers that provide good maintenance to the roads in slick conditions.
