Well yesterday my girl friend and i drove from oldwick NJ to our appartment in Vernon during the thick of the storm. The car did great. there were a couple of times i wasnt sure if we were going to make it. There are big hills on rt 15 is sparta and the car clawed her way up them. I can safely say The Fiat 500 is and extreamly capable car in the snow. Only casualty was a piece of plastic in front of the right rear wheel. appears to be just for aero dynamics or something. Our Fiat is a sport automatic in rame. Will post pics later.
