Question about 2008 Toyota Highlander
We have a lot of snow here in Michigan and it is the first time we have driven our highlander in the snow and we are not happy with it in the snow. can you let us know what to do. We have used the SNOW? button however I do not think we are doing something right.
The "snow" button sets the transmission to start off in second gear, and makes the accelerator less sensitive thus reducing the tendency to slip and slide. It also has the effect of reducing the power and responsiveness of the car. Try driving with the snow button "off" in "normal" snowy conditions and see how you go. Use "snow" for exceptionally icy conditions.

I agree with Ian. My wife's family lives in Vermont. We went back last Winter for a visit and my father in law was giving me a lesson on driving in snow. Specifically in starting up a hill (like a steep driveway). "The trick" he said, is to never lose contact with the ground (i.e. not slipping). The way to do that is to start off very slow and keep it steady, just a light pressure on the gas pedal. The snow button is helping you do this. Master the technique and you won't need the snow button.
