Question Driving SLK350 in winter Toronto, Canada?

Hi everyone,

I am thinking of purchasing a 2010 SLK350. The only concern that I have is whether I will be able to drive it in Canada's winter in Toronto.

Has any one experienced this here in Canada?

Why not? Get yourself some winter tires and off you go!! Besides, "snow" is hardly a factor in Toronto...they salt the road frequently. In which case another suggestion would be to wash the car often in winter, especially the underside and wheel wells. You will find local SLK owners in the GTA who do drive their cars in winter at PureMB.com • Index page

It's not the best winter car and I'm sure there will be days when you wish you had an ML. But as you can see by just looking around...there are plenty of rwd small cars running around Toronto. I agree with arvy...winter tires would be a wise investment.
If you really want a sports car that can tackle winter..perhaps an Audi TT Quatro should be on your shopping list.
