It snowed last night and there is only one road uphill off my estate. I got stuck a third of the way up the hill and wheel spun all over the place.
I tried the traction control on and off and tried pulling away in 2nd and 3rd and it was terrible. Whilst I was stranded in the middle of the road several mickey mouse cars overtook me and gave me dirty looks as they went past. I eventually managed to reverse and have a run at it, and made it to the top.
My 156 2.0 TS was no where near this bad, in fact it wasn't bad at all. It it the GT, the JTDM engine, the 17" wheels and bridgestone tyres or what? Whatever it was it was rubbish.
Our estate never gets gritted so I am left with the prospect of being grouded at home whlist everyone else drives out.
