Hill Start Assist (HSA) or Other Brake Issue
I did a bit of a search.. didn't seem to get what I was looking for.
I have a bit of a problem... driving the xterra this winter is like driving an old pseudo muscle car.. I can spin the right rear tire a lot on acceleration. Granted, it's winter, I have studded tires, I'm not in 4x4, sometimes the pavement is dry, or wet, or frosty. But I'm going to say I'm driving the same as previous nine winters and it feels different. It happens on flatish ground where I wouldn't think the HSA would be engaged. And when the HSA is engaged it will spin a lot, like doing a brake stand, before taking off.
Also it's been -25C (-13F) ish for about a month, so I haven't been poking around to see what might be sticky... and I also haven't checked to see if I got a secret V8 swap. Am I jumping to a conclusion that the HSA is the source.. or is there another front brake rotor issue that might be causing some stiction? Point me in the direction of some research, greatly appreciated.
