I got home with my Sport yesterday & had a chance to check it out
in 7" of snow in the open fields around my house today. Didn't get stuck once....and that's without locking the fulltime 4X4 switch. The wider Yokohama tires that are on this one seem to get a good "grip" on the situation.
I was hoping for the Yoko Ono tires :lol:

Glad to hear the Rav had no problem in the snow. We got a little snow but only about an inch and most of it didn't stick on the roads. But I'm glad to know when we do get more I shouldn't have a problem. That's one reason I wanted an SUV.

Frank,
Any power transfer from front to rear was virtually undetectable.
On the '02 Explorer I recently sold, if any wheel started spinning
you could hear an audible "clunk" when the other axle was activated.
Not so with the Rav4. I even backed up an incline where the snow
covered a sheet of ice & it just barreled right up....no spinning, no
clunking. I figured if I did get in trouble out in the middle of my field,
I could just hit the lock switch. But I didn't hafta touch it!
