Hi ssam - It sounds like you drive in the same conditions that I would be driving in - I've been really leaning towards an Xi because I don't want to be stuck, stranded, or whatever in any kinds of conditions. I really need an all-weather car. My old Accord has gotten me thru the winters on reasonble winter tires (though not great ones) and I was more or less pleased with that. I've never worried about getting stuck or not being able to get home because of weather - I just drive accordingly. If I knew I could expect something similar with a non-Xi car, with good or great winter tires, then I would love to give up the complexity and expense of an Xi and go with straight RWD. I'm commuting between Ottawa and Mirabel along the back roads and skiing up in St-Sauveur weeknights. Whether it's bad weather or good, I want to be able to go if I need to.
Who did you buy your car from? How's the service been?
