I have turned off dsc, but then the car but starts spinning and moving from side to side..

But if I go up the same hill in reverse, I can go up the entire hill no issue.

They have a Subaru outback which goes up no problem.

Therefore, has anyone experienced this before, is it my tires, or is it that the xdrive can't handle it. It's disappointing..;-(

Curious how steep of a grade we're talking about? Pics or vid?

I live in the mountains and encounter as much ice and snow as anyone here and have never had an issue climbing hills around here with either our Scorpions or Blizzaks?

Are your tires almost done? We also have a '10 and are on our second set of winter rubber now. End life of the last set was less than ideal.
