Not everytime but often when roads are wet or light dusting of snow on ground ...whether I'm driving slow 10-20 mph or more when braking vehicle starts jumping and pulling to right before stopping. Very scary because it takes awhile before it actually stops. I must start stopping about 6 car length before the person in front of me and have to watch I don't end up in ditch since it pulls to right.

no -- provided there is something to allow the wind up torque of the axles to dissipate ( release) (wet roads ,gravel , snow ,ice grass, there will be no problems
Trouble can be expected it driving in 4wd on hard dry surface
that is your traction control system known as (TCS) ,,it is simply used for when you are driving up hills or in snow ,,also wet roads ..I never really seen the need for this ,,but they put them in vehicles
You have an intermittant problem with the stability control that has to be addressed at some point and that would be a good time for them to inspect the suspension for anything that could be triggering those symptoms.
replace traction control/abs sensors, and drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel filter. The fuel filter has probably never been replaced because of its location. You will NOT resolve the problem until you change the fuel filter.
Electronic Stability Control,works opposite to abs,in that,it stops the wheels from spinning on loose ground/snow by applying the brake to the wheel that is spinning.TURN IT OFF.you WANT the wheel to grip not brake.and as far as being poor on hills, the toureg (amongst loads of other makes of 4x4s),is NOT designed for snow/off road,the four wheel drive just ENHANCES grip/handling on tarmac.(try a Subaru on a track/off road rally).
Any vehicle will spin on a wet road even if it is a four wheel drive. The wetness does not give any traction to the tires. When it comes to snow that is deep you do have minimal traction but not 100 percent either
the stabilitrac system will turn the light on when its activated. Driving in wet/snowy roads will cause one or more wheel to spin as it slips on wet roads, this condition is normal.
I'm sure once your on flat even road without the possibility of your drice wheels to spin the light will turn off on its own.
There are two seperate headlight modes on a vehicle.
The "high" beam mode is for driving were you have no on coming traffic. You will be able to see further down the road and the lights appear brighter.
The "low" beam function is meant for on coming traffic and certain weather conditions such as the presence of fog, rain or snow. The low beams will point slightly down and to the right so as not to "light blind" an on coming driver and allows you to see the edge of the road.
Good luck on your road test, drive carfully.
