The snow mode allows you to take off in a higher gear. It reduces the chances of spinning your wheels. Once I get out on the clean street I use the normal mode.
They're fine. Like I said, I drove mine through the winter last year with the stock RSAs, and I'm in Canada, our winters are nasty. There was this one day where the roads were solid ice from freezing rain. If you're careful, you'll be fine. I made it to school without a problem.King3244 said:How are these cars on snow and ice? I was thinking about getting one and upgrading from my 94 sts but I have a long uphill driveway that gets slippery in the winter.
