First thing I did not like was the way the tail pipe put too much pressure on flex pipe in front of cat. Causes it to crack.
Second thing was door panels only hold by plastic pins that over time fail. Then panel just hangs there. Yes I know, put new pins in. Till they fail too.
Third, this car does not like non OEM brakes, drums, rotors.
As far as snow driving, like everyone else says, proper tires is everything on any car or truck. Also the driver. You can be a good driver in normal conditions, but if you don't know how to react in snow, it does not matter what you drive. I've taken my wife's Sunfire & my Honda and passed a plow truck going too darn slow. But it was on straight away, in normal fluffy snow, not slush or ice.
As for traction control, I agree with the one posting of it being a pain for ex. drivers. I also turn mine off. It is for less ex. drivers. It cuts power in half till it gets traction.
My opinion is this car does fine in snow for a front wheel drive car. NOT better than my 4x4 full size Bronco with good tires that goes EVERYWHERE.
