The last two days we had some black ice on the roads and I can say that there is no difference between my last car and the Focus. The ESP and TC act both as expected, even "smoother" because I didn't feel at all any "break on the wheel" even though the TC light lit for a few times. Today, going from a stop, while my car advanced and the TC light was flashing, the car next to me was spinning wheels and didn't advanced at all (Honda Accord). And yes, we are all imposed by the law to have winter tires before 15 dec til 15 mars so I don't think it was a difference because of my winter tires. The Accord is heavier so it should perform better than a lighter car. But it did not. So, all in all, I am very happy with my Focus and how it behaves on winter roads.
