Re: When to Use 4X4
Unless of course, you just moved up from your car to your first 4x4 SUV (you
know, real "trucks" like the BMW, Mercedes and Lexus SUV's) Then you can go
as fast as you want in any condition, as you are indestructible now.
It's fun living in a semi-"well to do" location that gets occasional snow
like Long Island. Other than L.A.and Miami, we must have the most Hummers,
and all other high end 4x4's in the country, so it's fun to watch them drive
50-70K vehicles into ditches and barriers....
