honestly, i see all you guys who are driving around in SUMMER TIRES. maybe if you had winter tires you wouldnt have issues. i dont have an XI but my car was perfect with winter tires with some sandbags in the trunk. invest in them if you are going to have a car in the northeast. to pete, sorry man, that sucks, but like i said, get some winter tires. blizzaks are awesome on ice from what i hear, dunlop winter sports are amazing in snow and dry conditions...i love mine.
Rest In Peace, Dad 7/2/09 Miss you...
