Mine is a toy. I don't suffer too much though now. DD1 = Focus ST. DD2 = Flex AWD. I do have to get a winter set up for the Focus in a couple months. F1's won't do.

I drive her most days, but I bought a beater for bad weather days. My only suggestion if you're going to drive it in the Winter months is buy a set of all seasons or Winter tires.

Driving her as a DD everyday Rain / Snow / Sleet / Sun - In the winter pick up a set of all season or straight snow tires and you will be fine.

Mines a DD. Sometimes we drive the girlfriends car but that's a Kia Elantra and nowhere near as fun to drive!

I'm driving a Saab 9-3 Turbo every day... I drive 50 miles each way to work and as fun as the Camaro is, I just don't want to put miles on it every day like that.

Although.... if I sold the Saab there are some Camaro upgrades there....

I run nothing but 93 in both cars.

N. Ky/Cincy here. Like AdamZ I drive mine every day. LS3/M6. Snow tires, common sense, learning to feel how the car grips, and learning how to rock if you get stuck are your friends.

Drove 3 NW Ohio winters with a 6spd LS1 Trans Am with all seasons. Only had issues with hard pack snow but so did all the big 4x4s and Subarus.

Also even though my gut and wallet hate it, 93 octane only. :/

Which is why I switched to Nitto Motivo tires. Much better traction in the rain.

Daily driven here.

So far, no issues in any weather. Grabbed some all-seasons before winter, had no issues.

Daily Driver. Except in the snow. Or Rain. Or if it looks like rain. Or below 32c. Or through construction sites. Or on gravel roads. Other then that, yep, a Daily Driver.
