I have to say that so far, winter driving has been great! This is coming from having had a 4x4 before the PM. Granted I haven't attempted to traverse blizzards but I've been driving with a few inches of snow on the ground and have been quite pleased with the traction!Bad winter weather compared to last year have anything to do with it?
The Transit is somewhat like the Sprinter,rear wheel drive.
Promaster is quite a bit different than them.
I can understand that there are some bugs to work out.
Me I like the low overall height and front wheel drive with the same inside height.
I don't follow. Isn't the ProMaster's gasoline V6 and transmission all new to our Ducato clone?It may also be that many people will never buy a new model anything the first year it comes out. At least that is what I have told people. So what did I do? I ordered a PM in its first year here in the U.S. I was all set to go with the Ford Transit, until I found out that they had reworked it into a rear wheel drive. To me that is opening the door for all kinds of new problems. Dodge on the other hand just took the Ducato, that Fiat has been making for years and changed the name, and maybe a few small changes, but nothing like completely redoing the drivetrain. If they did, then I wouldn't have ordered one. But somewhere after march 27th I'll start finding out if it was a good idea or not
weather is a convenient excuse. It can't be controlled therefore no one has to take responsibility for poor performance. Scapegoat.Weather is definitely a factor. People just don't like to go out as much and do anything when the weather is sh*t. Same effect can be observed during elections with how many people vote.
Was anyone on our forum one of the buyers of the 607 PMs sold in January?
I also think a demerit for me is the partition between the front and back of the van. I hear its not great for heating.
