Re: Any good reason to not buy a new
BCBoy, when it snows, it won't matter if she's on 2WD, 4WD, or AWD. She still has to stop. The OEM tires aren't really meant for snow, even though you BC guys get it pretty balmy compared to us here in Ontario. I would still switch to snow tires during the winter months. Another alternative (which is what I did for my wife's Winnie - I drive an Escape) is put Nokian WRG2's and I leave them on year round.
Just my 2-cents.
