I'm in a climate that deals with a lot of snow. This car is the least fun thing I've ever driven in snow. I came from Subaru and had some seat time in a Lancer Ralliart turbo awd. I also drive an older Hilux. Driving this car in winter would be so much more fun if the stability management was disable-able. Has anyone figured out a way of doing this? I haven't checked the fuse box or looked into pulling code down from the ECU/BCU/TCU etc yet.

Hello my fellow former Subie owner. I haven't had to deal with snow yet this year but I have messed with the traction control a little on my 6spd. Unfortunately it looks like even after you turn it off using the button it automatically turns back on after a few miles. I've met a few Toyota Scion techs on the Facebook page who may be able to better answer your phone question. I too would like to explore the option of pulling a fuse for track days. I'll ask the question in the Scion enthusiast Facebook forum and post back later or pm you.

I think there should be a button for that. You should have a sport mode switch and right beside that si the “VSC OFF” (vehicle stability control) switch.

Even when you turn the VSC off... it automatically turns itself back on within a minute or two. There is no sport mode button on the manual transmission cars at all btw. This is going to confuse people.

You have to hold the clear button in the steering wheel and the traction control button at the same time for about 5 seconds and it'll completely shut off the tcs
