VSA / Traction Control
Its been VERY wet here today, and I always drive with VSA on as default.
When pulling away at traffic lights, I've been getting wheelspin and a lot of noise, but the VSA "!" light not coming on. When I got home, I switched off the VSA and tried to deliberately spin the wheels from a standing start in the wet, and it seems the same either with or withoutthe VSA on.
In my BMW, the DSC "!" would flash on the dash and control wheelspin very quickly and quietly without spin occuring at all.
Am I missing a trick here, as I thought VSA incorporated stability control, ABS and TCS ?
Is the VSA not working properly ? - I hope not, the car is 2 weeks old!
Is it the torque of the 340Nm i-CTDi engine?
Any ideas folks..... ? What are your experiences....?
