Second, I'm not used to driving on snowy roads. I was slowly braking the car on a road covered with a mixture of snow and slush, and the brake pedal pushed my foot out a little. I'm wondering what causes this. I hope that there is nothing wrong with my brake.
I believe snow mode may use lower torque when you are starting out and may even start from 2nd gear.
As for the brake, what you may be feeling is ABS kicking in when it detects slipping during braking.
