Equinox performed admirably

We've had our '11 Equinox LTZ AWD for a couple weeks now. We live in the Seattle area, which just got a bit of snow. For those who don't know, snow is treated like a natural disaster in the Seattle area. You can not imagine the chaos that follows a moderate snowfall. That said, our Equinox AWD performed wonderfully! I was pleasantly surprised how nicely the AWD/Stabilitrak handled the road conditions.

Good to hear the AWD worked well.

My wife drives our 2010 FWD Nox and she's just gone through a week of first 7" of snow and then another 10" of snow. Believe it or not our FWD Nox with the factory Michelins works very well so far in these conditions. It always seems that a slightly heavier vehicle does the best in winter especially since the Nox has a decent front/rear weight distribution for a "front driver".
I always say to people who have to drive in snow or ice is that regardless of whether you have FWD, AWD or 4WD, you need to remember that all of these vehicles still only have four tires and four brakes so they all STOP poorly in these conditions.
