As i left the stopsign and began turning i felt the rear end of the car start to kick out so i hit the brakes and the abs kicked in and just made things worse...slide into a parked scion xB. I feel horrible
Damage done to the scion... very little compared to me IMO
ugh...i still cant belive what happened...on the first snow day, on my first turn...
When you start sliding on a turn do not stab the brake. Give it light progressive throttle and correct the steering. The AWD will pull you out pretty quickly unless you are going too fast. The backend can kick out pretty easy if you are turning onto unplowed roads. I scared the crap outta a family in a sedan monday morning when the roads where not plowed yet and my tail did a wiggle.
