On a car with manual power brakes and a manual transmission, I was perfectly happy with 4 seasons ... Good 4 seasons with plenty of tread left. But with cars equipped with ABS, winters are must have equipment. Without ABS, when your wheels slide, you're in control. You can feather the pedal, you can stomp it, or you can let off all together. With ABS, the computer will fight any attempt on your part. You're along for the ride.  And if they can't find enough traction .. ABS will leave you without any brakes at all. Been there, done that. FORD that.


As for 4wd and AWD ... IMHO that only gets you to the scene of the accident easier.
