Hello! I have a Vito (W639, yearmodel 2011). I'd like to turn off ESP, but how to? I have no "M" button in dashboard. Is there any possiblities to turn off esp via stering wheel buttons?

like zenman, I wondered why you would not want ESP.

Like ME I wondered if turning ESP off would have any repercussions, so I spoke to the chappie at Red Star insurance (an underwriter not an agent)

He was horrified and said that (in the uk at least but most markets are the same) if an essential safety system was turned off FOR ANY REASON and an accident then occured (regardless of whos fault) the insurer would probably not pay and would likely void the insurance.

Indeed, in his opinion, the driver would be culpable and fair game to be sued by anybody involved, with little defence.

It seems odd that law does not require these safety systems but apparently the view is that if its fitted it should be in use and not being in use could be regarded as being dangerous and reckless deliberately.
