WARNING Risk of accident in poor road and weather conditions

In poor road and weather conditions, the trailer stabilization cannot prevent lurching of the vehicle/trailer combination. Trailers with a high center of gravity may tip over before ESP® detects this.

When driving with a trailer, ESP® can stabilize your vehicle if the trailer begins to swerve from side to side:

  • Slight swerving is reduced by means of a targeted, individual brake application on one side.
