Most frightening day in the driver's seat I've ever had. When I learned to drive in Colorado it was exclusively with an MT. Black Ice, AT transmission, A/S tires - No thank you. I guess these days with DS mode, an AT could be better on ice and snow, but bottom line, when it's glare ice, there's not much you can safely do except stay home.
