I happened to drive a 220 mile distance over the weekend. It was a 3 hr 15 min drive. I started at aout 7:00 PM on Friday night. Most of it - about 200 miles of it was in mild rain. On 3 occasions, the vehicle skid and immediately, the VSA kicked off and the vehicle was back in control. This is the first time I saw the VSA came into picture and I immediately realized how helpful it was. How is this VSA different from ABS
? Is it the same- just different names from different manufacturers? I was driving a Honda Odyssey. It is equiped with VSA and a button to turn it off too.
