Its not an all the time thing, but in light snow the Insight does just fine here in Maryland. As long as the snow that piles up between the ruts isn't higher than about 6 inches, its not problem. You should probably get more replies, as there are it seems many Canadians who use this site that have Insights, and if they can keep their Insights on the road when the weather turns cold, I'm sure they'll be steer you right. Gonna be a big change Phoenix to Rochester. Get ready for some snow!
