i wouldnt rely on it too much. thats when bad things happen. weaving in and out of traffic in icy conditions is asking for it unless you are driving a zamboni.:wink:

People with attitudes like yours are a hazard to our society.

Traction control does nothing but cut the power to the drive wheels when they spin.

It won't help you turn or more importantly stop.

Slow down.

Thank you.


Driver training does not make your car handle better... it helps you more effectively maintain control of your vehicle, in the case you are driving in adverse conditions or are faced with a situation that requires emergency manouvering.

Someone with additional training like yourself should be acutely aware of that.

When I drive my FWD Honda, I always turn traction control off. No matter what the conditions. I hate it.

Traction Control

Me too. I bought a 2000 impala over the weekend to replace my 86 cavalier. The trac control kick on and bogs me down when im trying to escape an intersection in snow (im in Nebraska) and to me seems to be a safety hazard.

I can't turn it off, either, since the dash button is either non-working or disabled but is not part of my service contract...I push it and there is no chime or light. It just doesn't acknowledge at all.
