    donwhill on the snow

    When i get a new car, one of the first thing i do in winter is a test to know the behavior . I test it on a parking place or downhill where not to many cars are. What i realised is that with the CT, if you are going downhill on the snow and you start to slid, The CT, instead of staying straight, it pulls me out towards the right, is that normal

    Re: donwhill on the snow

    From what you said i am understanding that these winter tests are done at different times. If this is the case there are many things that can attribute to a directional pull such as traction, grade, etc.

    -for traction you may have more or less traction available on either side due to ice or bare ground which would case the vehicle to momentarily grab or slide changing the direction
    -for grade it is obvious as gravity can pull a car to one side or the other depending on the "traverse slope"
    -I do not have the ability to comment on the CT directly but i would assume that any vehicle in proper operating condition, and driven in good conditions does not pull to one direction or the other

    I see what you mean and yes my test are done under different snow conditions, i do also wonder if it's not doe to the fack that the CT is very heavy. Anyway it's a 4 wheels traction and i will continue to understand it by driving. It's also my first SUV, so maybe i'm not use to it.
