Just wondering for those of you with newer cars that have Stabilitiy control, i.e. the system where the car's computer will automatically reduce throttle, or brake individual wheels when it senses a skid, or a understeer/over steer.
who of you use this system? do u find it useful?
i'm talking bout an average driver on the road, not talking about pro racers on a track or something.
I have it on my mazda 6, and someitmes when i'm turning way too fast and i'm about to skid, it will brake for me. Sometimes, if my rear slides out, within a second it does something and stops the slide. it brakes very hard for a sharp duration and somehow it manages to save my skid. Also if i'm accelerating too much and i'm just about to understeer, it will automatically control my throttle to prevent it.
I must say it has prevented my rear from sliding out on several occasions on dry road, and just a few times on wet.
What are your comments?
i know some of u will say "a good driver wont' use this and can control the skid himself" etc. etc.
