The issue I find every year with ASC, is that when i attempt to leave from an intersection, where other cars have sat before me time and again, they tend to melt the snow and it turns to ice. What this means is that the ASC detects a wheel is spinning. Then it tries to assist you by cutting power so your wheels don't spin.

End result? It happens invariably whenever I am trying to make a left turn either with the advance green, or after an amber. Result? I'm stuck in the intersection, now a danger to any vehicle behind me, or any now oncoming traffic.


Turn off the @#$!ing ASC so that when I press the skinny pedal even with tire spin, I move out of the way in the manner I intend to.
