I drive mine everyday and with snow tires they can do okay in up to about 3 inches of snow. But really, you wont want to be taking it out if it's snowing. Other than that Camaros make for great daily drivers.

I DD mine. It's surprisingly good in the snow if you have winter or all-season tires. I had a Corolla that would slide all over the place even in light snow.

I always use 93 for gas. I tried regular when I first got the car, because the dealer said it was fine, but there was a huge drop in performance and gas mileage.

Deff a DD. i had planned though for big trips to snatch the GF car as i wanted to keep the mileage down but i have yet to even be able to do that. Car is just to much fun to leave.

I daily drive mine every day and its been raining almost every day for a month now. Its easy just don't floor it or you'll spin real bad in the rain. Haven't tried the snow yet, may need new tires not sure.

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.

I've used them in the snow and they handled it surprisingly well.

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!
