"I live in Colorado so road conditions can vary drastically. From blizzard conditions to down pour rain to sunny days I have had no very little to no problems getting around town. Ive had more problems driving in snow with my 4x4 than I've had with my Monte. Traction control works great. I've only had to do regular maintenance and still runs like knew. Its a great combination of comfort, luxury, style and power. The stock sound system is second to none. It is very easy for diy maintenance. It is by far the best car I have ever owned. "
