    Default Traction Control - do i have it "as standard

    I've a 2008 Vectra 1.8VVT Life Estate and want to know if traction contol is standard.
    Yesterday during my travel to work I had to overtake a 40ft trucker going up a hill.
    I eventually overtook him - but wheel spinning everywhere - nothing was showing up on my dashboard and I've felt nothing happening with my steering.
    My previous Merc had this fitted and a yellow waring light "flashed" and you could feel the TC working through the steeling wheel.

    Thanks in advance.

    If your wheels were spinning with no warning lights and no change to the car then you haven't got it apparently it might not have been included in the facelift models

    Most lower spec vectras do not have TC even most 1.9 cdti sri`s do not have it, V6 cdti`s and petrol V6`s have it as standard.

    Thats what I thought (everything is an optional extra) - just making sure there was not a problem with my car.

    Thanks Again

    All pre facelifts except 1.8 have TC as standard no matter the spec. Facelift is a bit mixed up I belive. 1.8 again doesnt have it regardless of age, I think all early facelifts without EPC dont have it but some later ones do.

    Also the V6's have esp+ or something silly as std where the lower spec cars have tc.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I have a 55 plate Facelift Signum Design 2.0T, it has TC My Dad has an 06 plate Signum Exclusiv 2.2 and it doesn't have it.

    I have to say that in this day and age, a simple safety feature like that should come as standard

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!
