I bet he was pretty upset if he had to be the one to plow/shovel the driveway, after you packed it down by driving through the snow.Be prepared to be expectedly impressed that the Ascent is equally as good, if not a little better (due to more power). Not that it will be a surprise, lol!!!
My landlord used to ask me "Aren't you going to plow the driveway so you can get out?"
"I have a Subaru, I can get out easily... plowing is optional."
