Yup, stepping down from AWD to 2WD is a time for reckoning, and it will test your driving skills. But I lived in snow country for most of my life and never did have an AWD car. I had to make due with 2WD and/or FWD only. I had No snow tires and no chains, but I was still expected to drive about 1000 miles a week in all kinds of weather. (company cars)
I did it, and every day I got home safely. It makes little difference what car I'm now driving. (it's definitely NOT a Suzuki) When you don't have 4WD, you just do things a little bit differently. Or you stay home. Eh?
I can drive a 2WD car on snow and ice..... but many can't.
Know your limitations and drive accordingly. OK?
