Re: Help! 2007 Mustang ABS/Traction Control Ques
As far as I recall, traction control is built into the central computer. Needless to say it'll be cheaper and less exhausting to search around for a vehicle that has this feature if you're truly interested. ABS is a sole option. In order to have traction control you have to have the ABS, which in GT models is standard. If you're a defensive driver and take it easy in the snow and rain you won't ever need traction control. What traction control does is if it senses speed variations between axles it'll cut power to the vehicle so you can better stay on track. In a rear wheel drive vehicle I believe this isn't good for the reason that to get back on track, sometimes (depending on weather/traction) the only way to get back on track is to give the vehicle a bit of power, which the traction control 'nanny' won't allow.
