    I have seen a guy using his Micra to tow a trailer and a snowmobile he was surrounded by full size pick ups every one was blown away hundreds of miles towing and the car never burdened at all. It is an overachiever.

    Little Guy's ABS and traction control have gotten us out of a few scrapes over the last 4 winters; they are quite noisy from the inside, but I'm assuming they're the less expensive "slip-and-grip" kind.

    At 48,000+ km, the Firestone factory tires are starting to wear thin, was thinking of trying those "all weather" (not "all season") tires for our next tire purchase (we have minimal storage in our condo, and don't want to pay a montly tire storage fee).
    Nice!

    Skid control works less with winter tires vs all seasons.
