Traction problems on 2002 class C
My 2002 class C sportcoupe (and all others I guess) has a serious traction problem due to the open differential. This is most critical on 2 situations: when 1 of the wheels is on ice and the other on tarmac, and when getting out of a garage that has a curve in the middle on the ramp. In these 2 situations, one of the wheels starts spinning hopelessly, leaving me stuck without moving... the esp can't do anything to help.
On the other hand my father's class E (2005 I think) doesn't do this, I think the esp senses the spinning wheel and brakes it so that the other wheel gets going.
Has this happened to any of you?
Is there anyway to fix this problem? Like a esp update maybe?
