Luckily, the only injury I had was a very bruised left shin. And yes, what you describe is exactly how it felt. Once the dash lit up, the carseemed to lose all capabilities and began to slide. In .5 inches of snow! Other cars drove past me very easily, including my friend who was in a Nissan Juke AWD. This crash was surprising, frightening, and highly disappointing. This was our third Honda AWD/4WD vehicle, and it will also be our last. Back to Subaru we go.Wow, hopefully you weren't hurt during the accident. We get messages that our radar and other systems are not able to perform and I suspect it alerts us because ice is potentially covering the sensors and not much else. Do you feel as if the car just lost it's awd capabilities during this accident? Ours is not great in any type of turning situation where snow and ice are invoved unless we are at low speeds, it seems strange for an AWD vehicle tbh. It has a very light feel to the front end and this is the problem in my opinion, we always lose traction in the front, the front kicks out, either to the left or right and the awd system seems unable to correct the course unless I or my wife completely let off the accelerator, it feels weird and unstable. I mistakingly said that I had Bridgestone tires, they are actually BF Goodrich winter T/A tires(ice radials without studs) and I don't think that they are the problem.
