Just wanted to stop by and say hi. I got my first 2003 Mustang V6 3.8 about 3 months ago and its starting to get cold which means snow and ice are just around the corner. I have heard to put sandbags in your trunk to keep from sliding around and have more traction. Is this true? I also have a traction control button when do I use this? Thanks so much

Welcome... Sand over each wheel does help. Plus, if you get stuck, you can crack open the sand and sprinkle under the tires for extra traction.

Welcome to the Forum! :wavey
and ditto the above, I drove 5 Mustangs in the snow. One item to add to your trunk...a small shovel.
If you can afford snow tires that would be a plus, especially in the back.

Do I drive my Mustang in the winter? Occasionally. When the road is clean. Do I drive in the snow? Never. That's what the wife's car is for.
