On a related ESC note: I have a 2009 V6 AWD. We just started getting the slippery stuff here in Minnesota. I find myself very frustrated by the ESC activity, which is cutting power to the wheels when it senses traction loss. My previous vehicle was a 4WD Ford F150 that did not have this "feature". I will probably leave it turned off, which triggers the annoying light to go with the annoying passenger air bag light. I will have to break out the electrical tape tonight!
I am very used to powering through snow, and at this point, I think that approach is vastly superior to Kia's ESC approach. It can be very scary when you are trying to pull out or across moving traffic and that thing cuts your power. I think I can move much faster overall by letting the wheels spin a bit under power...thoughts?
Guess I should have read about the ESC before heading up the hill.
