Tires and Wheels problem
2009 Toyota Matrix 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 3200 miles
I had a close call on some thin ice on asphalt and wondered if it's me or the car/tires. I applied the brakes and the car kept a straight line and proceeded to continue through a red light at very slow speed. Luckily, no one was there to hit me or to be hit. The ABS was noisy, as expected, but still, the car wouldn't stop. Do I need better tires and if so, which kind? Or, do I need to work on my driving technique? The current tires are Goodyear P205/55 R16 SBRadials. P.S. I allowed plenty of room to stop. My part two question is that the car seems too new to buy an import code scanner for diagnosis. When is it too soon to think about getting one for a 2009 model?
have the same problem?
