Before I get lectured, I know I shouldn't have done what I've done. It was risky and should not be repeated. I'm running Michelin PS2 tires on 21 inch wheels. My fiancé and I took a trip to Reno last weekend. Coming back home there was a huge snow storm, as everyone knows the tires I have do not perform well in the cold. And boy did I find that out first hand, AWD did fantastic to keep my car going. However I had absolutely no brakes, the only thing slowing me down was regen. I made sure to keep a huge gap up until I came to a sharp downhill turn where I saw slowing down traffic due to a few cars spinning out. I let off the accelerator and the car is slowing down, but not fast enough, I try the brakes and nope nothing. Thanks to regen my car slowed down enough to where I could swerve onto the snow filled shoulder and come to a stop. I was able to get out of that snow, but as I did an indicator light on the dash came on, it's a red SUV with up and down arrows.
