So I learned I bought one of these Front Wheel Drive Chevy Captiva LT's while I was overseas contracting in Iraq earlier this year. We were looking for something to replace our 2006 Nissan Altima. I was hoping for something AWD like a Volvo or Subaru and something that we could trade the Altima for and pay cash for the balance - used. The wife went car shopping and bought this fantastic vehicle - got 9K for the Altima and another car payment. I learned about it after the fact... What am I'm gonna do? I guess if anyone asks me the question... is that rental car? I'll say... "it sure is!" Now that I'm home I've been driving this car (ute) around south central Missouri and find it handles pretty good on pavement. Good acceleration with the V6, comfortable, handles the curves and hills well, I like the leather heated seats, and the sunroof. That was all fine a good till we got Snow & Ice. We got gravel county roads, hills, and lots of curves here in the Ozark Mountains. Went to Christmas party off a gravel road in the valley of 2 mile + long hills. There was snow and ice on the ground and we were unable to get up the hills in this Fantastic FWD Chevy Captiva. Friends of ours had to tow us up to the paved highway with their 4x4 Toyota Tacoma. Our experience was very similar to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNox8gSl3Yg So the question is... What chains will fit this useless 2012 Front Wheel Drive Chevy Captiva? I note the the owner manual says not to use tires chains instead it recommends "Tire Traction Devices." That's not very helpful. What's a tire traction device? Looking on-line, I think I'm going to buy a pair of these S-Class minimum tire clearance snow chains: http://www.etrailer.com/Tire-Chains/Chevrolet/Captiva Sport/2012/TC2318.html?vehicleid=20121239485 Wheel wells be damned we got hills in these parts. Any thoughts?
