No just that you weren't going fast enough into the turn that you needed to floor it in the middle of the turn.

Bought an FJ Cruiser two months ago. 13' 6MT full time 4x4. Been offroading the shit out of it. Can't wait to see how it does in the snow.

Accelerate out of the apex! Way more fun than just riding thru it.


I like BIG trucks!

Holy Shit!!!

I am a new comer to this website/forum and this thread is pretty OLD and its still going...Started back in '09 haha! I found it because I am in the market for a new car that can handle mountain/snow roads BUT still give me good mpg.

I am too LAZY to search/read the posts in the 100+ pages this thread has gotten.

I will get straight to the point and see what kind of sarcasm you guys have for me :

Some people on here are saying Hondas/economy sedans & coupes (civic,accord, 4cyl bangers, etc) can make it to the mountains for snowboarding and back (as long as you use cautionary procedures) are as RELIABLE as bigger better vehicles (trucks, SUV's) ALL while doing it with better MPG.

In my 5 years of snowboarding...I have used Honda civic, VW rabbit and Mazda3 Wagon (current). All are reliable and can take me to the mountains no problem (as long as cautionary measures are taken) PLUS the added benefit of better MPG.

BUT...I am always "wishing" for BIGGER and BETTER . I also want PEACE OF MIND that it will take me where ever I need no matter what the road conditions.

I know what that requires: AWD or 4X4 in TRUCK or SUV body.

BUT...I HATE the terrible MPG those vehicles get

Should I stick with 4cyl bangers or upgrade?

I believe TACO, FRONTIER or Xterra as being the middle ground or "best of both worlds".

To me...TACO is a really HEAVY contingent on my list!!! White, black or red...she would look so SEXY on some aggressive snow tires, a good 4-5" lift and what the heck...while we are at it...a camper shell for parking lot CAMP OUTS, HIGH TIMES and the occasional BOOTY CALL!

Let the sarcasm begin!

Rally is a different world than a asphalt track


However, I do not disagree. Nothing more fun (in a racecar) than going sideways while your tires scream for mercy.
