I just got back from ski trip to Colorado and Utah. I wasn't too happy with the performance of the vehicle in the snow. I came across this review. It mirrors my experience with the vehicle. Admitedly, I'm running the dulers the vehicle came with...not exactly snow tires. If it wasn't for Toyota's quality I would trade in for an Outback in a second. Subaru has dropped from 6th in overall quality to 11th this year in Consumer Reports. Toytoa is #2 this year.
