Default Drove my xB in Washington State over mtn passes!!

Just reporting how well all the electronic nannies held up in the icy, snow-covered road conditions....


The xB was terrific!!!

I drove 800 miles across the state to Spokane over two different mountain passes, and, of course tested :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: out the VSC, ABS and TC.

The VSC was the best!! I tried sawing at the wheel when I was on the snow (in a safe area, natch) and after I got the tail to twitch slightly, a little chime & idiot light came on to tell me the VSC was taking over to prevent me from spinning.

BTW- The Scions are not sold up here yet, so I get odd looks wherever I go. People don't know what it is, but have repeatedly told me it's the coolest-looking car they've ever seen (not even our race-prepped TTE-clone SCCA ClubRally Celica AllTrac gets as much attention).
