Traction control systems are misunderstood and overrated. People get them confused with a limited slip diff, stability control systems, abs, and the like. The job of traction control is to detect when your drive wheels are spinning and cut the power to them, that's it. This way, a wheel that is slipping in the snow will have its power cutoff to prevent a fishtail type situation. I have not encountered snow in my Legend but I would recommend the use of traction control if you get into any slippery situation.

All of this was explained to me by a mechanic who worked at the dealership I sold Chryslers for. The customer wondered why the car she was looking at only had TCS for up to 35 mph. The answer to that was that no Chrysler will spin its wheels faster than that!
