    Vehicle : Vectra C Facelift

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : CDTi 150

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 71000

    Default

    Fitted standard on the Facelift V6

    But it only come as a option on the facelift as ESP+



    Electronic Stability Programme-plus (ESP-plus)
    D1. ESP-plus provides enhanced yaw compensation during
    understeer or oversteer. The system works by monitoring the
    front and rear of the car, comparing their respective directions
    of travel going in to the bend with the input received through the
    steering wheel. If the vehicle starts to slide, it applies corrective
    braking to the appropriate wheel, or wheels, compensating for
    the slide and helping you regain control more rapidly.
    ESP-plus offers additional safety in the form of 2-way traction control,
    which prevents the driving wheels from spinning, under acceleration,
    on slippery surfaces.

    TC was taken off the spec in early 06, only fitted to cars with ESP. Glad it was fitted to mine as it was the only thing that got me up a Welsh Mountain road over Christmas.

    got 06 facelift 150 SRI and it's not fitted to mine. Never needed it tho tbh, even in the snow. Don't think it helps much in the snow anyways.

    Mine gets turned off as soon as hit any snowy hills. The TC just kills the cars momentum.
