hello, I'm from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada
I've been driving my new 2014 Trax for 2 month now.
I came from 12 years driving a Pontiac Grand Am GT.
Since I hardly leave town I was looking for an affordable and economic car.
I think i found that in the Chevrolet Trax.

CHeers,

Rudi Mouthaan :)

welcome aboard! Did you have any seat time in the snow, if so how did the AWD system behave (if you have that option). I'm in North East climate, no where near the type of temp and snow you guys have, I figure if TRAX can handle that it can handle NorEast winters just as well :D

yes I drove it in the aftermath of this winter. The AWD system kicks in as soon as fromt wheels lose grip. It is hardly noticable but for a fraction of a second your front wheels spin and then you feel total grip on the road, really fantastic system.

I drive All-Season tires all year round. Did the same with my old Grand Am.
Never had any issue with that.

Interesting, i though with someone like you that lives far up north that you would need winter tires and maybe even tire studs.

Tire studs are available, though not much used in town here. We do not get that much snow here. Snow season is in november/december, then the hard freeze comes in 'til march.
The only spots that become real slippery are the intersections. The city throws sand on them throughout the winter. Luckily not salt. The only ones i see using studs are a few hardcore bicyclists driving though winter. The ice roads we have are flat and maintained and do not need studs.

I seem I was under the assumption that living that far up north that you'd get a lot of snow.

You're likely they use sand, i also see some type of spray being used, anything is better than salt.
