So there we were this afternoon, the wife and I, returning from a wedding on the eastern side of Washington state, driving over Blewett Pass with the cruise set at about 60 mph when suddenly a deer jumped up over the guard rail on the right hand side of the road directly into our path. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> I NAILED the brake pedal and I could actually feel the Emergency Brake Assistance come into play followed by the Anti-lock Braking System. Needless to say we stopped in plenty of time to avoid encountering the deer. The wife was quite impressed as well, once her heart settled back down from her throat. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I LOVE OUR XC90!!!
