Title: Icy Hot Hatch!
Where: Another snowy morning! Living high up (8000 feet), I'm often asked why I don't get a 4x4. Why would I? My car handles the snow without issue! The only time I've been stuck was when it was safely in my garage but the garage was snowed in.
Story: I drive a LOT all over southern CO for work. My GTI is almost 2 and already has 55K miles on it. Work makes me commute long hours every day but I really enjoy it. When winding mountain roads is part of your work requirement, who can complain when you get to do it in a GTI! This is my 7th VW (4th Golf, 1st GTI) and I doubt I'll ever drive anything else.
