Next thing you know, they have to start braking their vehicle because someone else slides in front of them or cuts them off because they weren't paying attention to blind spots while switching lanes. Braking in snow doesn't mean that the driver is bad. What's bad is a driver that thinks they have an end-all do-all vehicle. There are just too many other variables in snowy/icy conditions. The only safe way to drive, no matter your vehicle, is to get good tires and drive like an 80 year old grandma. At that speed, 2wd is sufficient.

Of course the game changes when you are on a wide open road. Then the 4WD can be really fun in those conditions. Especially a Soob.
I am 100% with you on this. I hate awd (most of them) drivers. I always say that is not the car but the driver. And how he perceives the pottential danger. I am very carefull and take a lot under consideration when driving in winter condition. And we all schould do it. I got my sub not because of the awesome awd system they have but because I can put my dogs in the back and because they have good quality pet barier
