I've driven mine in 15" snow and it will do it.  It will embarrass 4wd
SUV's and pickups especially.  Less ground clearance, but the awd system
lays down much more traction.  The trucks just look at you with a blank
face.  Damage could be a problem on crusty snow/ice.  Particularly the CV
boots, and the alternator belt might squeal/slip or break if its old.
Consider it a fun, but hard-use type of entertainment.
