I am fairly sure that you can get traction control in the US. I was going to buy a new tib in ny the other day and it had traction control. I couldn't afford the 400/month payments so I didn't buy it. But the one i was looking at had Traction control on the sticker.

Prevents you from burning all ur tire and save money <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0> and to maintain your traction on ice, snowy, rainy roads...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
For a sport car? I don't think TCS is all that important.. but again Tib is a GT... not a sport car...

Not sure but I think TCS works this way. Its is part of ur ABS system, so it really cheap to added by manufacture, but they charge u a great sum of $$$ for it as option. Its just a reconfig of the chip that monitors and activates the ABS but in reverse. With TCS, if a wheel spins, TCS stops that wheel, no it doesnt transfer more drive to the wheel that has the better traction as a limited slip type diff does as some dealers try to claim. It just stop the wheel that is spinning, the system just cycles back and forth until some grip is attained (like on ice)and sometinmes nada happens when there is no grip with the drive wheel. In some cases like in deep snow it may be better to turn TCS off since you need to spin ur tires sometimes to get traction. Most people I know who has TCS turns it off.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/cool.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Except in really wet conditions.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> Could be wrong and somebody will prob correct me on this<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>.
<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Unless you're planning to drive regularly through sleet and snow, TC is not worthwhile. First off, the Tib is not an all weather vehicle, so don't drive in the above conditions unless you have to. Secondly, TC is controlled by ABS which means you'll wear your brakes out faster, and Thirdly, if you need traction control, you shouldn't buy this car. Buy a Santa Fe, Subaru, RAV or other AWD ride instead.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/sleep.gif width=27 height=25 border=0>
You guys...Traction control is a GOOD thing! It limits the amount of torque steer...and I doubt any of us know how to power slide, and spin around using the e-brake anyways...I am looking to get and LSD for my 2000 Tib, its a nice little unit that is just bigger than your hand...not a big weight adder...also, if you have a guage for your traction control...chances are you have it! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
It doesn't hamper your cornering ability...how does that make sense...it's called "traction control" for a reason, dawg!
Uh, Traction Control is awesome guys! Trust me on this, most luxury cars have this. To the guys who said you don't need this, do you live in the desert??? I live in Canada and you can have a beautiful sunny day and next thing you know it's snowing or raining. Some guy said you should not drive your Tib in stuff like that, well it's kinda hard to predict the weather sometimes! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/finger.gif width=33 height=15 border=0>
