Looking to buy a 2009 Flex Limited but the local inventory is mostly 2WD. We live in Chicago and realistically only about 10 days of snow on roads. Does the AWD provide any additional handling or turning benefits versus the 2WD. Does the 2WD have traction and stability control?

2WD has the traction control and stability control. IMHO, based on our ownership of the 2009 SEL FWD, if you have 4 snow tires, there is no reason for need of AWD. Your area is fairly flat, so you are even better off than I am in my area, I'd not worry about FWD at all. Besides, you are saving a little bit of fuel for all those days that AWD does zippo.
