There is no on/off switch. When the system detects wheel slippage... voila it's on.

If you're driving in snow, be sure to hit the snow button right above the hood release. It makes a big difference. Remember though, it's a heavy car which means you need to be careful in turns and when braking. A lot of folks here recommend popping it into manual shift and using the gears to brake better in snow.

FYI there is no locking differential that keeps all 4 wheels going all the time. It does it only as needed.

I agree. I tried manual shifting to brake with 2 inches of snow and it works like a charm. The only thing you have to remember is that when using that as a braking mechanism people behind you do not know you are braking. You are trying not to hit a car in front of you but ironically the car behind you might hit you.

Look around and read some of the snow driving threads. It isn't the car or AWD/VDC, it's the tires. You need some goos snow tires for winter. Have you tried the Snow Mode button?
