Maybe the problem is that, like anti-lock brakes, traction control just feels weird when it engages.

So for some people, maybe it's better to have the car feel good, even if that means sliding or slipping around.

At my last Wiper-replace effort I returned the 1st pair because they were grabbing the window glass, fluttering, and making a noise in rain.
Pd more for some Michelins and lo & behold (months later) the bottom half of the wipers started grabbing/fluttering, too.
Finally put some Vinylex (protect/conditions) on the rubber blades and No Grabbing; Months later repeat Flutter, Repeat Vinylex.
Never had issue prior but That is my current Fix.

Hmmm wonder if part of the problem may be the windshield glass is no longer near-perfectly smooth--e.g., microscopic pitting of accumulation of crud/contaminants on the glass surface.

Ok, this may have been discussed before. Today while blasting the air I had a call come in. When I answered it, the fan speed decreased to make the call easier to hear. It picked up right after the call ended.

Neat!
