This is why you some of you are so terrible at debating with each other and making any kind of respectable points. It's hardly possible for someone to make such a sweeping inference about the quality of American vehicles based on a single observation.

Your responses have been amusing, thank you.

So, here I am sitting in my apartment. I go to look out my window, and below in the driveway there is a GM truck of one sort or another.

There are perhaps three inches of snow on the ground at the moment, and our driveway is by no means unusually steep or long. This truck failed to get up the hill four times. Then I walked away.

Congratulations GM, you made a truck that can't handle a minor New England snow storm.
2WD or 4WD?  Tires?  Weight in the bed?  Inexperienced driver?  Just because you have a truck doesn't mean you know how to operate it properly.

1) Ford is a different monster than the other American car companies, in that it actually makes a decent product and is not tanking.

2) This time next year I will most likely end up in some place with real winters, which is scary, because I have no idea how those things work.


Just as long as you understand the principle of traction.

Traction can be put to use for 3 different things, acceleration, deceleration,  and course correction. On a regular road, when you overuse your traction, you tires squeal. On slush or ice, they slip.

Try to speed up, or brake too hard. Try to turn too hard, turn while brakeing or speeding up, and you slip.
