Comment of the Day

Reader: Jeep drivers are the worst in bad weather and everyone knows it

Our list of the ten cars whose drivers can be jerks on icy roads generated comments aplenty, with dozens of readers sharing their thoughts about vehicles that we should have included. There were a wide variety of suggestions, but one brand was mentioned more often than any other....

Hands down, the vehicle I see passing me like maniacs and ending up in the ditch the most are Jeep Grand Cherokees! Fun SUVs for sure, but it seems like the drivers are unaware that the road is covered in ice when they pass me doing 10 over in a blizzard. I guess it's a Jeep thing; I wouldn't understand.
