Bruce Nunnally Posted February 14, 2004 Report Share Posted February 14, 2004 We're having a rare snow fall here in Texas, with a blanket of snow on the ground and snow still falling. Roads are slick & slushy, but also with a crisp snow covering. So, I had to take the CTS out to see how it did. I put the transmission into "snow" mode right off, and backed down the drive. No problems with getting going from a stop -- no wheelspin, no need for traction control. My understanding is that winter mode has the transmission start off in third gear. So, crept away from stop each time with no problems, and tracked perfectly through the slush. Minor traffic on the main parkway when I arrived because a Lincoln had slid over the median and bent a fender or two, but otherwise uneventful trip. I did worry over the low ground clearance for the CTS with some of the collected snow & slush, but no problems. We only have a slight incline to get up the drive, but also no problems to report there. Went right up and back into the warm garage. Overall the CTS seems good in winter weather to me. The car is very responsive and communicates well with the driver, which helps with knowing if there is going to be a problem or not before you get into a big slide. Of course, nothing can save you from the other drivers in the snow, but I was lucky and most people are staying in this morning.
