Acting in tandem with the Traction Control System, VDC[1] compares actual vehicle cornering performance to the driver's steering input, reducing engine power and/or applying appropriate brake pressure to individual wheels to help correct oversteer or understeer, helping to keep the vehicle on the steered path.

The Traction Control System (TCS), integrated with Vehicle Dynamic Control, senses wheelspin during acceleration, automatically reduces engine output, brakes the slipping wheel, and helps redirect power to the wheel or wheels with better traction.

[1] VDC, which should remain on when driving except when freeing the vehicle from mud or snow, cannot prevent accidents due to abrupt steering, carelessness, or dangerous driving techniques. Always drive safely.
