Re: xB and snow

On plowed roads mine did ok, but I lived in the country and found myself on unplowed roads often. It never did well there.

Re: xB and snow

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the 2nd gen Xb is probably the worst car I have ever driven in snow. It sucks. Tried michelins, contis, and yokies and every one was bad. Must be either weight distribution or suspension geometry. Even bad on wet roads.
