In Japan, the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) car market does not always refer to Electronic Stability Control (ESC) by that name. Different automakers may use different names to describe this feature. Here are a few examples:
1. Honda: Honda refers to ESC as “Vehicle Stability Assist” (VSA). This system is designed to enhance vehicle stability and traction by detecting and correcting oversteer and understeer.
2. Mazda: Mazda uses the term “Dynamic Stability Control” (DSC) to refer to its ESC system. The DSC system helps prevent loss of control by applying brakes to individual wheels and adjusting engine torque.
3. Toyota: Toyota uses the term “Vehicle Stability Control” (VSC) to refer to its ESC system. VSC helps maintain vehicle stability by adjusting engine torque and applying brakes to individual wheels when necessary.
4. Nissan: Nissan refers to ESC as “Vehicle Dynamic Control” (VDC). The VDC system helps maintain vehicle stability and traction by detecting and correcting oversteer and understeer.
It’s important to note that these systems are essentially the same as ESC and are designed to provide similar safety benefits. The difference lies in the names and branding used by different automakers.
