In another thread a couple of posters went on about how they have no problem with RWD. Yeah, you can do it but I still like the HTrack in snow. Very sure footed and you get a heated steering wheel.
That's good to hear, thanks. Did you clean the snow off the windows before leaving?got about six inches of snow here in Seattle, it's a real problem with the hills and slick roads with well below freezing temps at night. So far it's been a good performer in the snow.
Oddly, there are some features that are on the G80 but not the G90. Snow mode is one of them, AFAIK.You're probably a better manual reader than me, but I didn't know about "snow" drive mode on the G80 until after my first winter, so make sure you find that if you haven't. One presses and holds the drive mode button to enable it.
Never heard of snow mode! I'm in the Seattle area and about to venture out in sloppy snow conditions (about 6" until I hit the freeway.) So, what does snow mode do? I have the AW drive G80 and looking forward to giving it a test this morning.You're probably a better manual reader than me, but I didn't know about "snow" drive mode on the G80 until after my first winter, so make sure you find that if you haven't.

Eco would be like snow mode lite.Update to Seattle snow (actually Lynnwood about 15 miles north). Situation this morning. Remains of sloppy wet 6" snow frozen solid overnight. Just before this shot, my neighbor in a non AWD vehicle started out and promptly got stuck. Had to push him back into this driveway where he installed chains and then barely made it out. The street had a mild upslope to the corner.
After he departed, I put my G80 AWD in snow mode and was able to make it up the corner where it leveled out and away I went on my chore. Would ECO be my best second choice is this situation? The snow was frozen solid.
