Re: What is Best??
Leave it in drive, that's closer to neutral. If the roads are slippery, when you brake to stop, you can stop faster by placing the car in neutral than you can when the transmission is in a drive mode. While driving, Advancetrac will help keep you from accelerating too hard for the conditions, but if you're stuck, it will work against you, particularly if you're trying to get the car to rock. Unless you're towing, leave it in drive and the transmission will shift into the necessary gear if you're going uphill. If you're going downhill, keep it out of overdrive, the important thing is to keep it slow and easy. The second you get cocky is usually when you land in a ditch or worse.
Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?
Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
