I went out in the X-Trail tonight to take Father over to Bristol. Most of the roads were perfectly clear, it was only my parents road and the one in Bristol we were headed to that had any snow on them. I did at least prove that the ABS works, albeit in a slighly scary fashion, and that the 4wd-lock also works.
We only saw one crash, a car looked like it had spun into the barriers at the side of the road in St Philip’s Causeway where the snow was settling a bit. However going by the smell and the smoke, the Audi that slithered it’s way backwards up a road in Bristol while I was waiting will need a new clutch very shortly.
