No personal experience either, but some years ago, spoke with a coworker who had driven his wife's Prius for the first time. He said he was very impressed by how it handled in the snow, apparently from the extra weight and well-tuned, factory suspension.

Sounds like they may be cheap enough for me to take a look, eventually

maybe, but replacing a recent transmission is huge bucks compared to a mid 90's Saturn.
