Snow issues

Asked by Jan 05, 2017 at 04:44 PM about the 2015 Mazda CX-9 Sport

Question type: General

I have a problem getting around in the snow. I
figured with my car being a front wheel drive and
heavy it wouldnt be a issue. However my house is
on top of a hill and when we get snow I have to
park a block away and walk because I cant get up
my driveway. Any suggestions. Would you happen
to know if there is anywhere I can look up the
specs on it to see if I need to trade it in?

Either live with it, move or trade for an all wheel drive vehicle with winter or snow tires.

Cheapest solution is start out in 2nd gear and get some decent winter/snow tires. There are some good all seasons available too. How worn are the tires you have on now? I assume you have the OEM factory ones.

You would think a front wheel drive car would get around pretty good in the snow. I live in the U.P. of Michigan and have a front wheel drive car, (Chevy Impala) with great tires. Well not impressed at all. Give me a 4X4 any-day, which I have, just can't beat it in the snow. Now I use to have a 1966 2 wheel drive truck with about 4 to 500 lbs in the back, boy could I go threw the crap with that!
