Is the ghibli a daily driver - 12,000 miles a year

How's your experience so far as a daily driver?

I'm seriously considering the ghibli as a daily driver putting about 12000 miles a year. I live in New England so has to be good i the snow as well. I've heard it handles the snow well with all season tires.

Is anyone putting these types of miles on and how' it holding up?

I daily drive. About 3 months in and have zero issues. Prior to the ghibli I had an 07 quattropote which I also daily drove in summer and winter. These cars are great daily drivers. All seasons are all that is needed for the winter, especially if you looking at a Q4.

Mates! I drive over 30,000km/year with my Ghibli and it has been pure pleasure everytime I switch the engine on...

Thanks - I'm looking at the SQ4 and will definitely have all season tires. I'm curious how this will handle in the snow.

I live in Montreal and we have hard winters, the car handles them great. I have 37,000 kms with no issues.

Amazing car.

I daily her. 11K miles since November 2014. No issues. Of course, unlike boston, we only have one season here in Southern California.

I daily drive the car and absolutely love it. It is not a sports car, but a very lively 'sports sedan' that brings enjoyment to every drive.

I have the original all weather Continentals tires on my car and they attract nails like a magnet - and are crazy expensive $410+ ea. to replace. I hear the Pirellis are cheaper to replace...
