I drive a 2018 Ford Fusion Energi. I've noticed that occasionally when accelerating from stop, my wheels slip a little. My tires don't have a lot of wear on them, so I don't think it's a traction issue. (I've also never had any issues stopping.) I've tried disabling traction control and that doesn't seem to solve the problem. I'm assuming there's probably something going on with the transmission.
I won't be trying to fix anything myself, but I'd like to hear some objective opinions of what might be going on before I decide whether to get it serviced.
Found this quote from 2017 Car and Driver
The low-rolling-resistance tires prioritize fuel economy over grip, so sharp maneuvers prompt a fair bit of squeal followed by urgent intervention from the stability-control system. Driven more calmly, both the steering and the brakes offer wonderfully natural feel.
In consulting the owner's manual, the stability control is separate from the traction control and cannot be turned off. I wonder if that might be where the issue lies.
