I think there is no question that the same vehicle on the same dedicated winter tires will be more capable on snow/ice with XDrive. Many people judge the value of XDrive by this single attribute and...

Based on asking the question, the items you bemoan, and your preference for the 2013 Chrysler content, I suspect this brand is a significant mismatch for you. If the powertrain and chassis dynamic...

I think that is my point. What they find on a VIN search will be irrelevant once they have hands on the vehicle and download all the likely fault codes. You may as well simply take it in for repair...
