I use it in the snow. Otherwise if the roads are clear, TC is off.

TC should always be on.
unless you have a reason to spin the tires like rocking out of snow,mud or
at a track.

i dont use it, when theres a lot of snow you can get stuck in a parking lot just because of it. And i dont see that much difference when its on. Maybe thats because i have good winter tire.


Worst thing i got on my cars, but stabilitrak work wonderfully!

If I had it I would use it unless I was messing around. There is no real downside to it.

I always just leave it on, unless I want to roast the tires some. That is not very often though.
