That you cannot function or get anywhere without it?
Again its a want v.s. A neccessity in most cases.
Just bc you get a bit of extra snow doesnt mean you'll die without it.
Thats the point im trying to get at.
Of course there are the exceptions... but that doesnt mean its the absoloute need for everyone.
And i'm willing to put my money where my mouth is... who wants to bet that in the large majority of cases awd/4wd isnt needed?
How did Canada function as a country before awd/4x4 was common? The technology has been around a long time...
When the weather is nice, sure most people don't need AWD. But when the weather is nasty like the recent snow storms in the west, then many FWD/RWD cars would get stuck and unable to get out even with winter tires. How do you get to work?
Even buses get trapped frequently in Calgary. (Calgary Transit bus drivers would skip many uphill stops because doing so would mean their bus is now stuck in the snow).
So yes, many households here have at least one AWD car/SUV/truck. It is a necessity, not a want.
