They will do good in the snow, better than a truck that has no weight over the drive wheels. Yes they are reliable. That is why there are so many of them around. I used cleavland zip code for these searches: feedSegId=28705&rpp=50&transTypeId=28112&alMkId=20035&kw=v8& requestorTrackingInfo=RTB_SEARCH&stkTypId=28881&PMmt=1-1-0&z c=44106&rd=250&kwm=ANY&mdId=21148&mkId=20035&alMdId=21148&se archSource=SORT&crSrtFlds=stkTypId-feedSegId-mkId-mdId-kw-tr ansTypeId&pgId=2102&sf1Nm=miles&sf1Dir=ASC&sf2Nm=price&sf2Di r=DESC s.xhtml?endYear=2014&zip=44106&listingType=used&engineCode=8 CLDR&listingTypes=used&transmissionCode=MAN&transmissionCode s=MAN&mmt=%5BPONT%5BFBIRD%5B%5D%5D%5B%5D%5D&modelCode1=FBIRD &showcaseOwnerId=0&makeCode1=PONT&startYear=1998&engineCodes =8CLDR&searchRadius=300&sortBy=mileageASC

An LS1 is fairly reliable, but pretty much everything around the engine is garbage. Transmission? Soft junk. Rear axle? Soft junk. Interior? Flaky plastics. LS1-based engines tend to consume oil as well. The MPGs are better if you use premium. If not, MPGs plummet pretty easily. Maybe time for a v6 model if you *just have to have* an F-body. You have to pay to play when it comes to "Ellis Juan".
