  1. Impressed with Volt in the snow

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events

Usually, I put winter tires on my cars, but since I took over a lease and only have it until next year, I didn't get them. I wasn't sure how it would handle in the snow, but I must say I'm highly impressed with how...
  2. Traction control useless in snow

    Totally Off-Topic
    Today I was unable to go forward at all, backing up was fine. 6+" snow on the road. I turned off traction control and the car was able to move forward. Left control off on entire drive to work, car handled sloppy but kept control. Anyone have any tips how to use traction control in poor...

  6. MY 2012 Volt Traction Control (TCS) and StabiliTrak (ESP) Manual Deactivation

    Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    After reading the 2012 Volt owners manual I found out the Traction Control (TCS) and the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) can be manually deactivated. This feature is nice because sometimes I like to have "fun". With the 2011 Volt the TCS and ESP cannot manually be deactivated. I am sure other...
