I would love a turbo diesel, however we will never get that here in the US and adding a turbo to the current model will kill its excellent gas mileage. I drive an underpowered automatic SUV right now so it can't get much worse.

You keep trying to sell that thing as some awesome snow-destroying beast that conquers all terrain.

You do know that no one believes you or cares, right? The only time Honda Civics impress anyone is when 6-year olds watch Fast and Furious.

Don't let them put you down! As guy who drives a geo prizm to the mountains, I appreciate someone who has the skill to make a little car work in the snow.

Throw some chains on and put a hundred pounds of sand in the trunk and my four banger gets me where I need to go in the snow.

Now keeping speed over the passes, thats another story...

That being said, a taco might be in my future should I not be able to pass this years emissions test.

Prizm drivers Unite! Lol! Seriously though, sand in the trunk? Truly un-necessary. The Prizm holds down in the deep. I love my little 4-door 4 banger.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

My old car was a Honda Accord V6 coupe. It had 240hp at 3800 lbs. Fast as hell, could accelerate up a mtn pass with the AC blasting. I L O V E D that car. I still do love it but...

it sucked ASS in the snow. Driving that thing in the snow with chains was the suck. You're crazy.


now i have a forrester, non turbo. its seems sooo sluggish. I turn the AC off when going uphill I need to fix the honda. I miss it.

if a cat fucked a shark, the babies would be called women. snowklinger

Yep. I used to have a fish tailing-spinning out problem going downhill in the slick stuff. sand bags over the rear wheels seems to have solved that.

Fair enough, but that is definitely not a problem I have ran into. It still blows my mind just how truly capable my little Prizm is in the snow.
