The traction control on this car is absolutely overly aggressive and downright annoying. it actually causes me to become stuck constantly unless i stay in 1st gear where i can somewhat keep the rpms up. who wants to drive around at 5mph!!!! Ford has fallen on its face and dropped the balls with several things on this car, and this is definitely one of them. I will be trading this car in, in a few years when I can actually do so with a finance company not requiring a high interest rate n high payment. I love this car and the mpgs. but for me its too small, and the too many things I just can not stand.
Thats why ya fork out a few extra duckets and get the SE, where you can TURN OFF the T/C
