Vehicle Stability Assist

The Vehicle Stability Assist®  (VSA®)12 system uses an array of sensors along with ABS to minimize the dangers of oversteer or understeer.

  • The system continually monitors vehicle speed, throttle position, individual wheel speeds, steering angle, lateral G-force and yaw rate.
  • When the potential for oversteer or understeer is detected, VSA® will reduce the engine's torque and use the VSA modulator to apply brakes to each wheel as needed to help stabilize the vehicle.
  • The response is so quick that the instability may be corrected before the driver even knows it's occurring.
