Heather,

Please keep in mind that 4-wheel drive and 4-wheel stop are two completely independent and unrelated concepts. And, it's a habit of mine to keep score, of 4WD vehicles vs. standard vehicles in the ditches, come winter time, and so far, the 4WDs have outnumbered regular cars by almost 2-1 for the last few years.

Once, coming into to town for work, there was one of those phantom slowdowns on the highway, and I in my little car carefully stopped. And the car behind me carefully stopped. And then I watched in horror in my rear view mirror as the jackass in the Ford Excessive behind her, with his FWD and ABS locked 'em up, and doughnutted down the highway towards her. Fortunately, he found spun into gravel on the shoulder, and abstained from plowing her car into mine...

So, be careful out there. You're cool, but you're not invinicible.

I've driven 4WD vehicles before - I'm fully aware of what they can and can't do. They give you more power for starting and keeping control with poor traction, but don't do a damn thing for stopping.

Very cute. :)
However, I thought this was replacing your Saturn? If so, then you have a shiny red Tracker to replace the shiny red car, not both. ;p
