    ..in fact switching the traction control off barely increases the fun level as those tyres just will not grip. So rather than fit snow tyres i'll take the MR2 out when she gets home in it, Rwd+Mid-engined=FUN! Being brought up in the country on Rwd with no electronic aides, to coin an phrase "i...

    I live in a snowy climate and want very much to purchase a 2010 Saab 95 Aero AWD. I am curious to hear from current owners about their experience driving in the snow, good grip, does the traction control grab hold and make you feel very stable while handling in snowy conditions? I own a 2011...

  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    After a heroic effort we managed to finally clear our street from snow ourselves at the weekend. Now it's covered again with no ploughs / gritters in sight. Anyone used snowchains here? How practical or easy to fit are they? Do they actually work & how much do they cost? Cheers

    I have some snow chains that i bought for my 2005 9-3, but will probably fit all Saabs. They are the self adjusting ones that you just put on and they self tension.
