In forty years of driving we have never driven a car that is as bad
in the snow as our 2006 Yaris Hatchback. We went out and bought
snow tires today, hopefully that will help. But the dealership told
us not to use rims larger than 14 inches for the 2006 hatchback.
That sucks.

The car is too light, and too close to the ground, to be a wise
choice for the country roads in Ontario, at least this year...

cordially, as always,

Why should it suck?

You bought a Toyota Yaris to use in Ontario Canada? That was your first
mistake. I own one and it works like a charm here in Dallas. Of course, we
have frozen precip once a year... You picked the wrong place. A Ford Escape
Hybrid would have been a better option for a place where it snows as much.

Remember, the snow tires go on the front, not the back. 8)
