It hasn't really been a snowy season in the Northeast yet, but I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with their MS in the snow? I live in NYC and will be trading in my lexus IS 300. I am a little concerned because my IS is also rear wheel drive and is atrocious in the snow. I literally do not feel safe driving it if there is ANY accumulation on the ground.
The dealer told me that with the MS, due to the weight, it performs quite well in the snow but I have my doubts. The three main issues with my current car in the snow are the same with the MS
1. Rear wheel drive
2. Lot's of torque
3. Low to the ground (i've gotten stuck even in light snow as it would buildup under the chasis)
I understand that snow tires would help, but is that enough? Also, since I am in NYC we usually clear the snow pretty quickly so I have never put on snow tires as I haven't needed them for more than a couple of days at the time.
Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
