Ford has been restricting/limiting chain use for decades, this is really nothing new.  From the 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII OG:

 

To prevent body damage, do not use snow chains on your Mark VIII.

 

 

Speaking of Mustangs and older Fords, I'm pretty sure the Owner's Manual for my 1985 Mustang GT said snow chains should _not_ be used.

I bought a 2015 Mustang GT yesterday!  White (of course) with all the options.  I will post pics when I get a chance.  :)


Nice early Christmas present!

If I could just convince my wife to give up her Explorer.

When contemplating a purchase of a vehicle, one must think about all the requirements they have for the vehicle.

I agree. But I'm also a bit obsessive. I made a number of lists to compare and assess vehicles before buying. Overall we've been very happy with the Fusion. There are some things that are still disappointments, but we knew about those disappointments before we got the car. I know that you did that and I did that, but I'm not sure it's a reasonable expectation of all consumers. Some ppl don't think about things that much.

No way!  I don't think anyone here would have ever got that impression.  ;)

Hi mwr, GrySql, and others,

 

Did you ever find a snow chain solution or just give one of the options a try?  I'm temped by the Thule system you mentioned:

Even if it is a eCVT issue, it seems like the fixed structure of the Thule system could help reduce slippage?

 

Thanks!

I gave up because of the express prohibition against using them.
