Volkswagen renames ESP as ESC

Do not look for a ESP button on the new Jetta or any other new VW from here on out, Volkswagen has decided to rename its Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP) as Electronic Stability Control (ESC)  just like the most of the auto industry  so that when people cross-shop VW with other brands they see the same wording and don’t get confused. It also matches the wording on NHTSA  rules to implement the system on all models by 2012 .

Look for a new ESC button to make and appearance as a running change featuring the industry standard picture of a car with the squid marks behind it and no you still cant turn it off on the 2011 Jetta sorry!

  1. You can’t turn off ESP in the Jetta? Even if you keep pressing the button for several seconds?
