    Question 2.0T Traction Control

    I have been told by a VX Teccy today that the 2.0T Veccy has no traction control fitted, also been told by the sales manager that it is an option on purchase when new.

    My 07 plate Turbo SRI went in for several faults and no TC was one of them. The car is a handful in the wet without TC and cant believe it doesnt have it as standard. My 54 plate CDTi SRI had it.

    Can you help?

    I believe it was Std on early cars but an option on later models.

    Just got hold of a manual online that quotes it is part of the ESP pluse pack. Cannot believe a 175bhp frontwheel drive car does not come with TC as standard. VX are money grabbing gits.

    Manual link is https://www.gmproductforum.co.uk/articles/396.pdf incase anyone else wants to look.

    Thats strange i thought normal traction control came on the 1.8 and the rest of the models had TC PLUS. That link you have doesnt even mention traction control as an extra it must be a mistake.

    If you have it will light up on the dash cluster when you turn on the ignition and go off telling you its working fine if it comes on and doesnt go off then there is a fault.

    No TC as standard on (nearly) ALL facelifts except those fitted with V6 engines, and only available as part of the ESP or IDS options. Some early non-V6 facelifts (except 1.8 petrol) were fitted with traction control as standard.

    ALL pre-facelifts except 1.8 petrol were fitted with TC as standard.

    VX said that the handling was so improved on the facelift compared to the pre-facelift that TC was unnecessary. Opel didn't agree with them, as they fitted ESP to everything. More to do with penny-pinching IMO.

    Here's a question - can it be retro-fitted? As the ABS sensors are already there (which is what I think TC uses) is it a question of programming or is extra hardware needed?

    I'd like to have mine remapped but I'm a bit reluctant to do so with no TC fitted.
