Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®)
To help you maintain control in spirited or emergency driving situations, the Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) system continually monitors vehicle speed, throttle position, individual wheel speeds, steering angle, lateral g-force, and yaw rate to detect oversteer or understeer. When necessary, VSA automatically reduces the engine's torque and uses the ABS system 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 you even know it's occurring.
VSA is not a substitute for safe driving. It cannot correct the vehicle’s course in every situation or compensate for reckless driving. Control of the vehicle always remains with the driver.
