Not A Car For Snow
By palominogirl on


2008 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


I bought this car in the summer and absolutely loved it until winter hit. I have the standard low profile tires that come with the new models and have had nothing but trouble in the snow. Last winter I had to get towed out of the middle of the road in 6" of snow (I had a Cavalier before that which would have had NO problem going through it).This winter I got stuck in a driveway and almost at my work's parking lot. I have zero traction on it. I am going to try to get more winter appropriate tires for it in the next week and give it one more winter.If I do not see improvement I am trading it in for either a Ford Escape or some other 4 cyl. SUV. I can't afford the risk or the towing.

Best Features

The interior, the style, they way it handles on dry road.

Worst Features

Make it a bit heavier and more suitable for winter driving.
