It can be done you just have to drive for the conditions and put some extra weight in the rear end. Traction control helps too, but there is always the find a beater option on the cheap. It may pay for itself in insurance saves by having the extra car as well.

I've always had the opinion that simple common sense and safe driving matter a lot more than what type of car you drive. If you practice safe driving skills and leave yourself enough time, you should have no trouble driving in bad weather.

I've driven mine through the worst that Chicago's winters have thrown at me and been fine. What worries me more than the bad weather is the other idiots out there who continue to drive like crap in it.

Hi. I live in WI and am considering a 2013 GT with the track package. I was wondering if anyone drives a 2011+ GT year round in the snow as this would be my only vehicle. Of course I would get Blizzaks or a similar tire for the winter, but I am still worried about how the car will handle. I see many thread from people with older Mustangs, but I was wondering if I could get an opinion from someone with a 2011+ GT. Thanks.

I've driven my 2.3 hatch through one winter. The winters in AZ are fairly mild, but we do get the occasional heavy storm. Being ballsy like I am, I drove my 2.3 to work and school numerous times. Never had a problem, did have to go slow. Climate control inside the car was broken, so the ride was cold to say the least. Drifted around in a few empty parking lots, felt pretty damn cool.

I live in Utah. During the winter I have snow tires and 3 50lb bags of rock salt in my trunk. I get around just fine.
