Not yet but I expect to in the coming months and expect it to perform well in those conditions.I am considering the CT with 4WD, has anyone experienced a winter storm while driving one? How does it handle? Is 4WD better than AWD?
Question for you:Not yet but I expect to in the coming months and expect it to perform well in those conditions.
Our CT's 4WD system is one that transfers power to the rear only as needed -- in the event of slippage at the front.
This differs from an AWD in that it has power going to front and back continuously.
As to which is better I cannot say. To my mind the 4WD is more economical since the rear wheels are driven only when needed ......whereas the AWD has power front and back at the expense of some economy.
Hello again Sandra. The bristles have to be stiff as you know since snow and ice are difficult to deal with so don't worry about that stiffness. From my experience the bristles won't damage paint provided that's all that makes contact with the car.Question for you:
What kind of brush do you use to remove the snow, I find that the bristles on those brushes so stiff.
Thanks for the infoHello again Sandra. The bristles have to be stiff as you know since snow and ice are difficult to deal with so don't worry about that stiffness. From my experience the bristles won't damage paint provided that's all that makes contact with the car.
I really haven't found any winter brushes that aren't appropriate just get a good one that works for you and is long enough for your needs.
Mine is fairly sturdy and long and has a foam handle for comfort and grip with bristles on one end and a scraper on the other.
The business ends are plastic to prevent any damage from brushing or scraping and costs about $10 at CTC....
Here's a thumbnail of one of mine. It doesn't have the scraper attached but you get the idea.
Yeah, I agree with the comments. If your in a Northern climate, I wouldn't even consider FWD. I didn't want a Subaru and when I was looking at just cars, only the luxury brands had AWD options. So, I started looking at CUV's. We had a real bad winter in PA last year and I had to pick up my daughter from college during winter break. I had a Venza then, but the system worked, kept me feeling safe and secure on really bad roads. I suspect the Honda will do the same, but I will never go back to FWD unless I just move to a warmer climate someday. Like all systems, just because you have them doesn't meet you can drive more aggressively in bad weather. Black ice and ice in general doesn't care what AWD system you have - it's all physics after that.
