I find my car handles better (and peppier) when I turn off the traction/stability controls. I wonder how many have lost it due to the controls taking over and prevented other saving actions from being implemented.
Hubby has a 2012 Mercedes GLK AWD and actually hates the way it drives because of that. He has a bad back and we bought it because he could barely get in and out of my Jaguar anymore. I still drive the Jag because I love the way it drives. lol
