yes, the clicking noise you heard is normal when the TC is engaged.not too bad.. last week though i got stuck going up a hill because if ice with the snow. I heard a really strange clicking sound and at the same time my traction control light came on.. does anyone know if that is normal.
You're comparing dedicated winter tires to the all-seasons our cars come with. Of course there will be a difference. Survey ratings say these Kumhos are just "fair" and only in light snow. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires...utoYear=2013&autoModel=Sonata&autoModClar=GLS (click on surveys tab)Stock Kumo tires have got to be the worst tires for snow I have ever had. Bought a set of Brigestone Blizzak tires and it made all the difference in the world. My driveway has a slope to it and the kumo tires would barely make it up to the garage. Needless to say I will not be purchasing a replacement set of kumo tires for summer driving.
HEHEHEHEEE,, something that is a way of life around here and all the people that live here and drive here act like they all from the south somewhere,, AAHHHHHHHHHHHH,, White death...What is this snow stuff you speak of?
Very similar to when I lived out in Virginia. First year I was there we had 2 inches of snow. They declared a snow emergency and warned people to stay home/off the roads. BECAUSE THEY DONT HAVE PLOWS!HEHEHEHEEE,, something that is a way of life around here and all the people that live here and drive here act like they all from the south somewhere,, AAHHHHHHHHHHHH,, White death...
Funny you should ask, 3 of us went to lunch at local wing place for lunch Friday, and it was coming down hard (snow),, they had HLN on 1 of the TV's, and fella was in Dallas doing reports,, not a car to be seen on the roads..
Got back to shop, hit the Hyundai Dealer site, message from HMA says PDC in Dallas is closed for operations due to weather,, we out living it like another day in paradise, and you all is stuck at home.. silly local schools out in county here on 2hr delay, and some/most in the city more is closed.
Wutttt .95% of troubles driving in winter weather is drivers. I'd give 4% to drivers and 1% to vehicles themselves.
Agreed, I had my first chance to drive mine in the snow this past Sunday. With about an inch of snow on the street it handled okay at 20 mph-30 mph, I turned around because people decided to go sledding in their cars and started crashing... 10 minutes later I pulled into the slight ramp (maybe 5 degrees of an incline) that leads to our parking lot, and I got stuck! I dropped it to first gear , which had not affect as it started spinning like craaazy with the slightest tap. A few minutes later after reversing and driving I made it in. I was not impressed with thWutttt .
The stock tires are terrible in the snow. Last year, we got 5" and I couldn't get up anything. Awful experience , and will not take the car out if it gets anywhere above 4" (besides through the city where it is frequently plowed).
