First snow in the Fusion and overall I'm happy. The all-seasons it came with leave much to be desired but the car still did reasonably well. The AWD system is better than I expected a FWD-based setup to be. In fact, I think this system is better than Audi's Quattro in some ways (just based on my experience driving both on similar tires), though not as good as Subaru's AWD.
I'm able to turn traction control off but not stability. The stability control has a mind of its own - sometimes it lets you slide the car around, other times it shuts down the fun pretty abruptly. Still, I was able to get the tail out easily and overall the nannies weren't too obnoxious.
That said, no matter how good your car might be in the snow, it's still a dangerous endeavor, thanks to all the idiots on the roads. Tailgating, splitting lanes, passing in the unplowed breakdown lane, driving without any lights on - morons everywhere!
