recent snow storm...

today,
i was watching the nwcn talking about the snow condition of the northwest...
i saw on the background of the reporter,
there was a silver liftback yaris on the backgroud,
it looks like it was left on the road side in the snow...
i guess the snow condition is pretty bad these few days...
or... could it be the yaris just can't handle it...

well I think the driver is the biggest factor in any car.....

but as long as you have good tires the yariii should be fine in the snow, although weight is a big factor (as with any car) so a sandbag or two in the trunk wouldn't hurt to have during the snow season.

i deliver papers at night when there is no snow plows. i use the e-brake to get around turns fast, normally my car will just go straight. only problems i have is getting up driveways and really steep hills, unless i get some speed up of course.
