AWD is enabling acceleration in a straight line. AWD does not help at all with traction, cornering or stopping. You are at the mercy of summer tires.

I will admit stopping was an issue but I was not traveling at high speeds.
Exactly. To stop properly you need weather appropriate tires.
Thanks for the mature discussion without the name calling and acknowledging that I already said the car does not stop well
