    I drive mine year round in VA but I work from home so not every day. Couldn't do it with the tires it came with so I upgraded and it's great now, even in the occasional snow we get around here.

    I do try to stretch its legs when the roads are dry. But I got caught in an unexpected snow shower a couple of days ago.:eek::mad:
    I typically use my AWD 5.7 Charger.

    I will drive it only when it's not snowing and roads are clear. Otherwise, it's stays tucked away. Chi-Town weather is not nice. lol

    I avoid driving anything on the roads in NC when it snows. The side and back roads are terrible and lots of folks here have no idea how to drive. Especially in the snow! My SP is a daily driver but it will never leave the garage if snow or ice is in the forecast.

    Although I work from home, I drive mine in all seasons. My time with it is limited to weekends. So... I will take it out every chance I can get.

    Unfortunately she's a daily driver here in metro Boston. Heavy salt and all that crappy black slush snow. As long as you're careful its not bad. My question is how harmful is that salt going to be in the long run? This is the only winter she'll see before it's back to Cali

    I want to drive her year round but winter weather roads are harsh. It hurts but she is kept in garage with bad weather and salt roads

    Only me, and when it's clear, sunny, and we have clear, salt-free roads. Eastern North Carolina doesn't usually have harsh winters, so snow, ice, and salted roads are conditions we hardly ever have.

    What's winter? We don't have that thing in Southern California. Just kidding. I see a lot of people around the forums that drive in the winter. Many opt for tire upgrades but unless you have another daily driver it's pretty much the only choice. My friend has a second set of rims and tires on his and just swapps for the season between Winter and Summer set ups. Still cheaper than another car.
