do u guys choose VSA on, or off for the snowing condition? :sleep:

TCS is something always on, right? I'm not too sure. :santa:

what about the height adjustable coilover equipped buddies, do u bother to wrench up the ground clearence? :santa2:

Driving in the snow is fun. I might turn off VSA, but probably a bit later since this is the first time I've driven in the snow with the TSX.

Once I get a better handle on how the TSX handles in the snow, I'll probably do a few days with VSA off.

If I'm just driving around in the areas I know, I can probably handle the road better than VSA can.

Considering this is the first car I've had with any sort of traction/stability assist, I'm more used to the old style of pump gas/brakes to maintain control of the vehicle. VSA disrupts that type of driving since it changes the handling characteristics of the vehicle dynamically.

If I'm driving in new areas though, I'll probably leave VSA on, since it will give me a bit of buffer in really unexpected situations.

DAMN THESE All season tires on the TSX! I couldn’t make it over my school speed bump so I had to back up until I could find room enough for me to cut through the parking lot so I could leave school.

i just drove up to sfu with my winter tires and they were alright

the vsa did go off on grandview highway near the entrance of highway number 1 though due to the fact that i stopped on an icey section of the road

but they're definitley better then the all season stock i had on last year!
