I have searched the forum, havent found a relevent thread. Please post a link if you know of one<br>My driving situation:<br>I live 9000 feet in the rocky mountains. I drive approx 100 miles a day commuting to the valley below. The highway that takes me down is snow pack most of the winter, my driveway is just plain snowy.<p>I test drove and fell in love with a S40 T5 last weekend, the other car im considering is a sub outback2.5i wagon. I have had sub's in the past and they have performed well in the conditions stated above. Problem is, i realy realy like the volvo. Can i remotly expect the same AWD performance with the volvo? All the other comparisons im not asking about, but if you want to include them go for it, i realize there not in the same class. <br>Thank you.
