We finally got our first snow.....

and what a snowstorm it was! We got over 30 inches. Once I cleaned the car and the parking lot was mostly clear, the CX-3 drove like a champ, no problems whatsoever driving in the snow round the parking lot. My neighbor who parks next to me drives a Kia Optima, she had trouble getting out of her parking space, then got stuck 3 more times before she made it out of the parking lot!

You must be up near me. They reported almost 40". We haven't seen plows yet. 3 guys, 3 snow blowers and a half mile of snow later, we got to the secondary road. The CX-3 did well after I got out of the driveway. Will post a pic in a bit, haven't figured out how to do it on my iPad yet.

Finally out. Did pretty well with no loss of traction, but the high snow was hitting the bottom and exhaust pretty heavily.
