Seriously? Owners manual makes it sound like they all have that. Kooky...

So are you positive it has traction control? Haven't seen a car yet that has TCS installed with no ability to disable it...

Heck, I wouldn't even consider what I just showed as "straight forward"...

I don't really like Hyundais. But I like that Hyundais have a damn button on the dash that you push it once to turn off the TCS.

Yea.
My dads LHS and moms vue have buttons.
RX8 has a button if you press it it turns off TCS and if you hold it it also turns of stability management.

A hard button for TCS/Trac is a big selling point n a car for me, since i live in buffalo NY.
But at least i can trun it off in the focus.

Does the "Trac OFF" light come on during start up?
