Yep, mine is awful in the snow as well. After a couple bad winters, I picked up some blizzak snow tires. They really helped, instead of going 15mph slower, I could go just as fast and faster than everyone else.

I'm not sure what it is about the type s package, but they just don't like the snow.

I've got my first Jeep on order, so I hope that qualifies. One reason I am getting the Jeep is because my other "baby" is my 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP. It's 1 of 1,800. 1 of 78 in my color. Wicked fast, plus I've added headers, catback, CAI, and tune. The jeep will be my DD. I'll drive the Pontiac when it's nice.

So, I guess the G8 is both "before" and "during" my Jeep experience.

1983 Dodge Challenger 5sp
1981 Chevy Citation 5dr 4sp
1988 Ford Taurus
1993 Geo Tracker soft top 5sp
1995 VW Golf City 5dr 5sp
2000 Toyota Echo 2dr 5sp
2002 VW Golf GLS 5dr 5sp
2004 Chrysler Pacifica (front wheel drive)
2006 Mazda Mazda5 5sp

First three were bought used, all the rest were bought new. 95 VW and the 06 Mazda were my favorites, followed closely by the 93 tracker. My JK is the most fun, for sure, but it has a lot of "making up" to do for the bum cylinder head.

I'd bet money I'm the only person here that traded in a Saab for a Wrangler.
My prior car was a 2007 Saab 9-3 Aero, stage 0. Loved loved loved that car but with their bankruptcy and concerns over parts availability, I had to sell it.

Prior to that, not much special other than a 2000 Firebird convertible.

Full list:
1983 Chevy Cavalier
1995 Ford Aspire
1994 Chey Cavalier Z24 Convertible
1999 Saturn SC2
2000 Pontiac Firebird convertible
2007 Saab 9-3 Aero
2012 Jeep Wrangler
