It better be! I’ve only had mine through one mild Seattle winter, so time will tell. Good to hear those positive responses though. I’ve been expecting less than stellar snow performance.Any words of wisdom pro or con on this subject?

I'm the Bozo who started this thread. Have owned many many cars (wife's correct it is an illness). Have always had a couple of rear wheel drive v-8s that need put away for the winter. So the c70 was justified as the winter driver. Explained to wifey that front wheel drive with snow tires will get her through the winter. (She hated her 345 hp Chrysler 300C in the snow!) Don't know that she'd buy in on buying a winter beater after justifying this car's purchase. She's in the top 5 of 95 owned and rising quickly. Easily one of the nicest cars ever owned. OK snow tires on Dec. 1 .Con:
If you really like that car put a cover over it and buy a beater for the winter.
I know what winters do to cars. If you love your C70 as I do mine-then take care of it by not letting it take any winters on the road.
Your car is always at risk of being damaged, even when it's parked in your driveway. I wouldn't let the fear of an accident deter you from enjoying it. Cars are meant to be driven and can always be replaced.I would never run that car in snow and ice. If anybody rear ends you, you can kiss that convertible good bye.
I’m with you, Michael. Besides, I suspect most of us drive Volvos for the same primary reason. I’d much rather be in it in a rear end collision than a non-Volvo.Different vibes for different people I guess...
