After driving several Mustangs and a 2 wheel drive work truck in the snow, I think the GTO does great for a RWD car. It is heavy and has a good traction control system. I drive mine everyday and it is much better than I thought it would be.SJAndrew said:Pig as in it's all over the road.
Now I'm speaking relatively of course. It's prolly no worse than any other high horsepower RWD car with wide tires.
I'm a very capable snow driver. But, my GTO stays in the garage if it's snowing. I have that luxury.
If I didn't have another car, the GTO would have been a tough sell for me. It's not good in the snow, has a laughably small trunk (this annoys me more and more), bad mileage, and expensive upkeep (expensive tires, premium gas, synthetic oil) and is bad if you're hauling >2 people.
BUT....and there's a HUGE but here...It's sinfully fun to drive.
Don't get me wrong....I LOVE my GTO. But, living in Denver, I don't know if I would have it if I didn't have another car to drive in the snow or for when I need to haul people or things.
My biggest conplaint is why do they bother to put cupholders in?QwkRed05GTO said:After driving several Mustangs and a 2 wheel drive work truck in the snow, I think the GTO does great for a RWD car.

My gripes for a daily driver - no place to hang clothes from the dry cleaners, slow seat motors to allow kids, packages, etc into the back seat, rear spoiler obtstructs view when looking in rearview mirror, no compass or heated seats (my last few cars had these features and I got used to them) 1-4 skip shift sucks in slow traffic, and low beams are not that great (but high beams are awsome). That being said, I love the car! I would have bought an STS if I wanted more comfort features.
No eating or drinking in the goat!!!! That is rule #1!!! Rule #2 is NO SMOKING!!!!:cheersmumrah said:My biggest conplaint is why do they bother to put cupholders in?
They are only good for holding closed beverage containers. I was so angry the first time I had a half full cup of coffee and tried to accelerate slowly and still had coffee come out of the little hole. "by slowly I mean not stomping on it"
