2013 Hyundai Accent

Asked by Jan 21, 2014 at 01:17 PM about the 2013 Hyundai Accent GS Hatchback

Question type: General

Driving in the snow has been a nightmare with this car. I read about the traction control
and turning this off. Does this really help? I got stuck driving up a hill and crossing the
road and back into traffic.

Just bought a 2013 Accent GS. Car is far to light to drive in snow anything over 2 or 3 inches of packed snow and you are screwed.

Leave it on. It helps minimize wheel slippage. Best thing to do short of buying snow tires/tire chains is to get a run up, flooring the pedal and keeping it down until you get to the top of said hill. This method worked for me when getting up the 30% graded hump on the road to my house. Doesn't help the stock tires for both available rim sizes on this car are crap.

there is a blue light behind the rear view mirror that doesn't flash anymore but stays on constant, any idea what's causing this
