I've seen videos and brief descriptions about x-mode but am still not getting it. Yesterday and today i drove up a fairly steep and rocky road using x- mode. Enough so my passenger got out to help steer my path on the narrow road to avoid any underside or tire mishaps. (Front engine hood is very high and limits visibility and front camera is too distorted to give much help). Going up, i had places i had to really give it some gas to get over the rocks. Coming down, the engine seemed to brake and slow me but it was a "jerky" action. This road seemed to be an ideal place to really check this out. So now i need to know if this sounds typical for x- mode? I really didn't use it in my outback especially on terrain like this. This road wasn't really on our plans but the view and hospitality from the fire lookout was worth the trip. Just trying to get a better understanding of what i should expect and when to use this feature.
