Do You Like Traction Control?

personally I HATE it, but I know lots of people that love it and was curious what everyone thinks. if ive got a vehicle sideways, I'd rather not lose power to the wheels... but thats just my opinion

HATE IT, it always seems to kick in right when I really need to be able to move. Ya know, like when I've just slid thru a stop sign/light and am now in the middle of an intersection... or out the end of my parents' driveway and into the road at the backside of a blind hill.


has basically dropped off the face of the planet... moved and still havent had internet installed at the new place

i hate trying to pull out from a side street and traction contro kicks in and your car just crawls so slowly into the road, then every is braking behind you and laying on there horns. Yeah i dont see it being very safe. ive almost got into a couple accidents because of it. and i dont think ive ever been saved because of it.

Peronsally i think taction control along with the ABS are good ideas, but i think they are way to sensitive. M abs has kicked in some times when it definatly should not have.

Should be called throttle control because that's all it does...IMO it's not needed with a 2.2/2.4

I hate it, I don't like ABS either- I'm used to driving a car without any assists- and thats just the way I like it.
