Default Questions about a 2003 Honda Civic!?

I am thinking of purchasing a 2003 Honda Civic used. There is only 46,000 miles on it so its a great find. I live in upstate New York so i am wondering if anyone knows how the car is in the snow. I'd most likely get snow tires for it. Is it all wheel drive? Any other reviews or comments anyone can give me?

Hondas have always been good, reliable cars. The car is front wheel drive, and FWD cars usually perform pretty well in the snow. Unless the snow accumulates ridiculously year after year where you live, snow tires may not be necessary on your car. Only more if it was rear wheel drive would you need those tires.

nah ivics have never been AWD, they are FWD, which handles better then RWD in snow, or so ive heard, i live in texas so i dont see snow, but ll my familys from michigan, so they grew up in it. of course awd would be the best for snow. civics are great reliable cars. sounds like a great find, the civic should do fine in the snow with snow tire, barring an attempt to drive uphill on ice.if the awd is going to be a deal breaker keep in mind, all subarus are awd, so thats an easy ay to make sure you end with awd, not to many honda cars are awd. dont get nme wrong, i love honda, and am not trying to hate, but idk why they dont make anything thats awd. i honestly cant think of any awd honda car.. and i love honda..
