Re: Winter Driving - My 1st Time in an Automatic

Hi Oliver,

In these conditions the snow and ice setting will give you very little benefit as i have been using it most of the week so seeing you don't have it i would just let the auto box deal with the conditions, it will know what to do,as most have already said no sharp steering or braking or even accelerating and take you time and keep your distance from the cars around you although your can't predict what other road users will do so stay focused as drivers tend to do the stupidest of things in these conditions so watch out and only make the Journey if you really have too,

Cheers Donald
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
