The GXP in the snow
We got a few inches of heavy, wet snow last night followed by colder temps and lighter, blowing snow and icy patches. Seeing that my GXP is the first non-4wd vehicle I've owned in over 20 years I was a bit nervous. But I have to say I am really impressed with the Traction Control and the brakes of this machine. I obviously don't have the ground clearance of the trucks so deeper snow will probably be a problem, but on the slippery roads it does every bit as good as my 4wd F-150 did. Plus the GXP was not affected as much by the strong side winds. I took the backroads home today and tested the anti-lock a few times. She slowed quickly and in a straight line. Perfect. The front wheel drive and Traction Control also did a great job with very little wheel spin at all, and the spin I did get was intentionally caused.
At highway speeds it was sure-footed and stable.
It would seem the only worry I have now is the other idiots sliding into me.
