Nice!

Fighting on the internet is like competing in the special olympics. Even if you win, you are still retarded...

Lol! So the criteria for being a man is shooting deer.

I'm sorry but subarus are not chick cars. Subarus are pretty nice (especially the sti and wrx) are are the best alternative if you don't want or need a gas hungry truck.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Many of us require neither a gun rack, nor the cargo capacity to transport our kills, for our snowboarding vehicle.

Now if this were a manliness forum (ooooooHHHHH!), or a hunting forum, or a truck forum, I could see your point.

In transporting people and snowboards to the mountains, a Subaru beats your truck, and every truck, in every aspect that matters. Speed, snow capability, gas mileage, you name it.

I drive a civic and it also easily outperforms most trucks in all these aspects for mountain driving as well. (I've had ignorant people try to beat down my civic, its a stick shift SI, it'll downshift and race any truck besides a Raptor up a steep hill, it only weighs like 1800lbs or something).

I'm not saying a truck can't work well in snow, its just that I don't need the added weight, loss of power/weight, loss of gas mileage, or anything that sets the truck apart. For camping, hunting, hiking, 4wd access roads, anything like that, sure I'll take the truck.

Ya I have to agree with him there, not trying to start a pissing match, but no way in hell your civic handles snow better than any 4wd truck. And if you are trying to race people uphill on a snowcovered road in your civic then you are dumb. And as far as subarus go I have mixed feelings, but from my experience I would take a truck over an awd Subaru any day of the week. Much higher clearances, beefier tires are big factors for me. Subarus will snow plow before the snow touches my skid plate.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

So damn wrong it hurts. think you would learn more about a car before openly speaking about it.

Well like I said, the truck would be better for back country access, however, here in Colorado, we have snowplows, and they go on the roads and highways (infrastructure, modernity, wow) and around all the places with resorts.

I drive like a grandma when there is any icy shit on the road whatsoever, I am simply making a power ratio comparison, and I like having power available. Its a civic, obviously I'm not some drag racing gearhead LOL!

I drove up i70 my first day of work in all season tires in 8" of snow, effectively pushing it uphill in my civic. Now that day, sure, a couple inches that a Suby or truck offers would be better. However in every amount of snow less than that, my civic with snow tires will outperform a truck (ill give a 4x4 truck WITH snowtires a slight advantage, however I rarely see someone in a truck bother with snowtires). FWIW I haven't seen that much snow on i70 in 5 years, and when there was, it was closed.

Clearance is the only thing I gave the truck and I did. I haven't had any problems with my Civics in Chicago, Omaha, or Denver.

Kirkrider also makes a point.
