I just have to report how fantastic this car performs in the snow! I have been having a blast, enjoying all the fresh snow and even on ice it has done remarkably well. This with the factory all weather Michelin tires. We have taken it out and really gunned it around corners (in remote areas of course!), and couldn't get it to go out of control. It will slide some in hard stops of course, but it's still pretty controlled and I feel very secure in my Halle! We got 8 inches of snow last night and schools were closed, and people not going to work. Not me, I couldn't wait to get out there!! Now if I could just trust that guy coming up behind me a little too fast . . .
