    I have an 09 4x4. No complaints until the first big snow. When I open the doors- snow on the roof falls onto the seats. No biggy - but somewhat of an inconvience.

    I have found that happens with 90% of the vehicles on the market. Unless of course you, as silvertaco82 stated, "brush it off before you get in"

    it does this with most vehicles, you need to get into the habit of wiping the top edge with your hand before entering.

    I forgot about doing that but afte rthe first snow that got everywhere inside, I remembered:)

    X2. doesnt matter what kinda vehicle you have, when there's a build up of snow on the roof and you open the door(without brushing it off), there's only one place for the snow to go. my suggestion brush it off

    Next time you go to open the door, have a bag ready and try to catch it. Be sure to have someone sending the feed to TW.

    Back in college, a class I was in was going on some field trip and everybody had to gather in a parking lot early in the morning. All but 1 had shown up, so we're waiting there for the last person, and she comes driving around the corner with her head out the window, like Ace Ventura. Her windshield was covered with ice, and she was from florida and didn't know that you could actually SCRAPE the ice off with an ice scraper. Anyway, I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt here and am assuming it's the first time you've seen the fluffy white stuff. IF it's not, just say it is anyway, ok?

    be carefull jonny. if your friends read what you wrote they might start throwing snowballs. its happened in every car i ever owned. just have to remember to brush off the door seem. i always do the passenger side first cause if some snow gets on that seat im not sitting in it.

    I suppose rain will bring out the second complaint. Followed by sun and wind.
