Very true, Carol. Horsepower is meaningless unless you can keep it planted. About 15 years ago I owned a '93 Subaru Legacy and a '98 Frontier 4x4 at the same time. The Frontier was one of the last of the old-school drivetrains: 4 cylinders, stick shift, manual hubs, manual 4x4 selector with low range. I loved it for exploring back roads, but for highway driving in snow and ice, the Subaru was my choice every time. My daily commute at the time was 20 miles of winding mountain 2-lane that descended from 7000' to 5300', and the Subaru got me home every time. Kept it 14 years and 205K miles.
