ToyotaFilter: What does my "ECT / Snow" button actually do?
posted by fogster to travel & transportation (8 answers total)
All I can find -- both in the owner's manual and online -- is that it's for use when driving in snow. That much I assumed.
I drive a 2003 Toyota Highlander, and live in New Hampshire, so yes, there's plenty of snow to use it in. Trying it on the semi-snowy roads, I really didn't notice any difference.
What, specifically, does enabling this mode do, and how does it accomplish whatever it does? What should I know about using it? (I've heard it said that you shouldn't use it over 30 MPH, for example, but this is never mentioned anywhere in the manual.)
