As a southerner I really didn't expect to use the "winter" mode on my 98 S70. I really thought of it as more of a gimmick that made a Volvo a little more Volvo. After driving in the "big snow" for 2002 I am actually pleased to find out that the winter mode really did help out in reducing wheel spin on initial start and acceleration.

At any rate, the S70 handled the snow and ice just fine and I enjoyed getting to play with a new "toy". I felt like the Michelin tires I have were not very good in the slush though and may look to get something a little better in the wet stuff for my next set of tires.

Yeah, you guys really got dumped on huh? Glad to hear you made it through alright and that the 70 performed well.

I've always been happy with my 850s in the snow, but I LOVE our XC in the snow.
