Most people here in Minnesota I'm sure just get by with All Seasons, thinking as many do that the name even applies to the winter season here. I too managed that way many years, until 1992, when I finally broke down and got snows on separate rims. Every car since, that's the way I roll now. One gets spoiled on them.Thanks everyone. I already believe that snow tires are better than all-season. (I just need to be convinced to *not* be a cheapskate about buying them + new rims + TPMS Fortunately I usually get to choose if I want to drive when it's bad out. I've owned AWDs and both Gen's of Volts. And my Gen1 seemed pretty good, considering the weight/stability vs an AWD (all w/ original tires). My original post was really OT because I was trying to figure out if everyone is saying Gen2's drove differently than Gen1's on their original tires. I'm guessing they're equivalent, and I'll just have to get used to it. Or pony up some $$ to feel more secure.
As for AWD vehicles, I believe it's been shown that an FWD or RWD vehicle on snows, will stop better than an AWD on All Seasons. They may not get going as quickly, but the way I see it, stopping is the most important part.
