we had about more than 1 foot of snow (about the knee) i was so frustrated at work.. as i know i have the summer set of wheels and tires so worried about braking and prone to accidents as people tend to forget how to drive in winter again.. and then saw my sorento all white instead of black.. they were making fun of my sorento that i cannot get out of the parking area because a lot were already stuck well.. even though i had summer wheels and tires, i showed them 4wd kick in and got out from my spot with no problems, their jaw dropped.. and said to my co-workers " yo move your a** b**** " you think kia cant do s*** " we all laughed out so loud including the manager.. went home running 30km/hr, i have traction but no grip for braking lol..

from this...



to this..


and also winter mats.. of course

Lol! Kia sure can do s*** eh ken? :)
My SX is in KalTire today having the Nokians installed. Should be done anytime now.
We got fewer snow here in Peace River but it'll prolly become worse next week.

Felt and seen the ESC kicked in yesterday when I turned sharply right at 30kph.
