    Many of us experienced the big winter storm over the last few days... So what's the verdict? How did your ATS do?

    I took mine out today in the snow for the first time. Handled beautifully. I've never had an AWD car before (always FWD), so it was truly a pleasure.

    It took me 6 hours to clear most of the snow from my driveway (with a tractor). Afterward on my driveway,I floored it with it on "touring". I have AWD. The tires spun slightly but the car accelerated smoothly. I retried it with it in "Snow" mode. The tires didn't spin and it accelerated easily. On the road though,the ride was roUgh given the poor quality of county snow removal.

    After the horrible conditions Thursday morning (during which I was stuck for 4 hours in a massive traffic jam on I-29 due to semi wreck closing the highway). Other than having to get out and de-ice my windshield wipers several times over the 4 hour standstill, no problems driving on the snow packed roads. Love AWD. Extremely pleased with my ATS in the adverse conditions.

    My AWD is in the shop. The dealer gave me a 2.5L RWD as a loner. I've had a number of RWD sports cars, so I pretty much knew what to expect. The car did really well. I didn't have any trouble getting started at all. I did try the snow and ice mode. The car did start out much slower with it set to snow and ice.

    Wonderful! Thanks for the feedback, you all. It's nice to hear so many of you were able to enjoy your ATS despite winter conditions trying to get in the way. Your feedback is much appreciated!

    Everyone seems to have the AWD, anyone have RWD with winter tires?

    I have a RWD 2.0 and had no problems making it to work through the snow. I was impressed on how well my G8 did in snow compared to my FWD GTP, the ATS did even better. Even while trying to play a little bit, the car soldiered on. ABS kicked in quicker than the G8 and the throttle was adjusted as needed by the car when I did slip (barely). With that said, still be careful!

    My RWD 2.0T did great in the snow that we had over Christmas. Better than my FWD Volvo C30 did.

    There wasn't a lot of snow here this weekend, but my driveway is a menace at 3" for most cars. The ATS had no issues. I even stopped it midway up and then tested the climb from a standstill at a steep point. Just a tiny slip to the side and right up the rest of the way.

    Which tires do you guys have on your RWD's? I am in Northeast PA and I have the summer tires that came with the car. I had some trouble with the snow.

    Re: How Did Your ATS Do In The Snow This Past Week?

    Summers are a no no in the snow no matter RWD or AWD. With RWD you really need snows, but I think with a good set of SNOWS the ATS should do pretty good in the snow

    ----------

    But I too am curious if after this past superstorm anyone else has any feelings on how the RWD ATS did in the snow, and please let us know what kind of Tires you're using
