Just curious : were those Cherokees or Grand Cherokees ?YES! I have the exact same problem. I've had two 2016 Trailhawks and they both suck in the snow. A lot of other TH owners will tell you "it's the best vehicle I've ever driven in the snow". Don't listen to those fools. You know your car better than anyone because you're the one driving it! My other half won't drive my Trailhawk in the winter at all. Too dangerous. It's a piece of crap in the snow and on ice and any rainy pavement. It fishtails all over the road and especially when turning corners, you have to drive real slow around corners to keep the rear end from slipping. I don't feel safe in mine in the winter. I thought maybe it was just a problem with my first TH but now that I bought a second one I know it's a problem with these vehicles in general. I am thinking of getting snow tires for next season. I don't know though if it's the tires or just the nature of these vehicles. I am very disappointed in them and thought they were my dream car but once I'm done with it we are going to buy a Subaru Outback instead. We currently have a Hyundai Tuscon with Canadian Tire General tires on it and it's way better in the snow than my Trailhawk. It doesn't matter if it's in auto or snow mode, or traction control is on or not it just likes to slide around. I've had so many near misses. I drive it VERY defensively in the wet weather. Unfortunately, I cannot enjoy this vehicle for what I thought it was. I'm glad to read your post. Finally, somebody else honest about how these things really drive in snowy and wet conditions.
Oh and which tires did you have on them in the winter ?
