I took it out to our build site which is up a pretty steep hill and it did just fine in our last snow storm. I imagine with a good set of winter tires that it'll make things easy.
Get a price from Chris Farnham at Langhorn VW for your Mom. He's got screaming deals.
Sounds good, and thanks for the heads up. I think she'll probably get the 5 cyl which should be more than enough since she only drives 4-6k a year. Those must be some solid cars too because they weight a ton, I just looked it up and the 3 door Golf weighs only 200lbs less than my huge Passat
