      So does the yellow light on dash showing car skidding mean esp "on" or "off"

      these companies are horrible and it's quite odvious the driver dose not know how to handle a car and that the lost of control cornering test was clearly intentional

      Of course it was intentional, but it demonstrated the difference without not being unsafe.

      Probably will get dislikes for this but Mark is right. Although I don't agree with the woman drivers and old people bit. But if you actually know your vehicle, how it handles in various situations and what your limits as a driver are, ESP is absolute bollocks. I've been in dangerous skids where it was either hit a barrier or flip in the ditch, and you know what I did? Timed the throttle and countersteered accordingly. If people actually knew what to do, we wouldn't need computer assists.

      We all know that esp works on VW cars, now they just need to make the "esp off" button functional.

      You obviously need to push the car more, my 2008 rabbit has it and it's saved my ass on countless occasionals including when i had to swerve around objects on the highway in the wet at 120kmph, caught the car as it was going into a slide and kept it straight and under control, it works.

      That had to be the worst "demonstration" I've ever seen. It's obvious you're deliberately throwing the car harder when ESP is off.

      Bullshit yeah right. My 03 gti has this but I've had it with out it and it still the same. It's not the car but the driver.

      @kranial007 and you are a pure race driver lol really! you have no sense of a real danger,that occures when a dangerous situation comes in a matter of 1 or 2 seconds,in the past i said that the esp is nothing to mention,but i had a bad experience when in front of me a horse suddenly came out of nearby woods and to avoid it my car slipped lost control and fall beneath a small bridge from 7 meters high! so i am lucky that i had no serious injuries,and plus the esp,saves you from bad slicky road.

      ESP is only for driver without good pulse on the steering wheel, gas pedal, and brakes, steering on a curve can be controlled by not too tightening the turn on the steering wheel, and for how to recover from slide is to break turn from the last right turn into the left turn of the steering wheel. ESP is helpful for non-skilled drivers, especially on women and old drivers. See how ESP contradicts to the racer's skills in driving.

      I have an 06 Jetta that has ESP and I can feel the difference on icy Minnesota roads.

      no problem ;) I am very satisfied with the fact that ESP is standard by default in modern cars. You never know when a crash is about to happen. I had never used the full potential of ESP on my Jetta, and I'm glad of it. Its amazing looking back and see cars without seat belt... lol ESP is a major development in cars. drive safe man ;)

      I thought I was writing to the publisher of the video. Sorry man-kadocako. I have about 500000km on the road and have driven cars with and without ESP,but will never again drive a car without the system. ;)

      I'm Portuguese. Portugal stays in Europe, you stupids. I didn't do slalom at high speeds, I was on the limit, next to the owner of the car which I bought! I was on a test drive!! it is suppose to actually test the car, if you don't know... if only you change your PC to live your lives once...

      I tested a Volkswagen Jetta yesterday. I want to buy one so I took him for a test drive. I've entered in a tight curve at 120km/h without braking and ESP took care of it safely! this is a major progress in car security
