So today I took my manual premium out in the snow and can confirm what others have said. The stability control feature does seem to come on (I could hear something I believe was brake chatter), but it only happens when the car starts to go pretty much sideways, and it wasn't stopping me from having fun and drifting the sucker around pretty well. This was of course with the trac/stabili set to off. A salesman told me that the stability and traction control can be turned off but reengage at 25mph and above automatically. I have nowhere to go fast enough to test this...has anyone else been able to prove or disprove this claim?
