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.<P>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.<BR>

Yeah, you guys really got dumped on huh? Glad to hear you made it through alright and that the 70 performed well.<P>I've always been happy with my 850s in the snow, but I LOVE our XC in the snow.<P>
