On Ice

Has anyone ran into an issue where they are on ice and they are spinning their wheels and when you try to speed up the engine doesn't allow it? Im guessing its a feature of the traction control or one of the other systems, but man is it annoying when you are driving in everyday traffic. I just sit there and can't move my truck with traffic coming at me. Not really impressed with this feature

Another instance was backing down my slanted driveway and then going forward, the truck will not rev to get me off the ice. Do I honestly need to switch buttons on or off or throw it in 4 wheel drive to go 10 feet in my driveway.

Sounds like traction control.... Theoretically it thinks that any throttle will add to the problem of no traction.

I don't know how you drive, but I have to move my hand all of about six or eight inches to tap the Auto-LSD button. It takes about 1/8 of a second.

I was just being dramatic and wanted to complain about it. Next I will need to flip a button to take my cup out of the cupholder because the Anti Spill Control sensor is engaged.

Oh for Pete's sake. The Anti Spill Control Sensor Deactivation switch is on the same stalk as the cruise control buttons. You just push it forward and down, then rotate it back and pull it out, then honk the horn three times. Bam, your drink is ejected into your lap.
