i take a 1995 BMW 740i up to the mountain, good snowtires on it and i haven't had any troubles with it. Boards don't fit inside but I got free roof racks for it so it's all good.

One of the benefits of working at a BMW delaership, I get free goodies off trade in cars, I got my roof racks snow tires and rims all for free.

I have a 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4x4. Terrible gas mileage but worked like a champ in Mammoth. Love this thing.

Acura Integra. Fold one of the back seats, and it'll fit 3 boards & gear easily. I just use chains when I need to get through the snow, and it does fine, as long as it's not really deep. Plus, 35mpg doesn't hurt.

2004 Toyota 4Runner and a 2008 Honda CR-V AWD, I have chains for both but never needed them. Boards go on the rack on top of the 4Runner or in a Yakima box on the Honda.

'05 Corolla, don't even own chains. Of course, the tires were pretty bald over the winter so I did a little fishtailing here and there, but that's all in good fun.

The condition of your tires makes 10x more difference in the snow than the make of your car.

'06 Jeep Commander. A beast on mountain roads...

We were taking our '08 VW Jetta up - it actually performs very well on the snow, but the poor thing was getting pretty scratched up by our idiot friends leaning their snowboards against the car...
