    Yes, they all have it. If you haven't gotten the "Stability system engaged" (or the like) screen yet you aren't driving it hard enough.

    That actually is a different one. Stability is for body roll (slalom type manuver).

    How is the cycle (TC off, Performance Mode etc...) on the steering wheel button again. I don't rthink the car keeps you informed what is currently the setting

    Chet,

    C'mon man, you haven't engage Stability Control yet. That's the best part. Ta' hell with traction control, WAG DA' TAIL man! So far that's the only way I've been able to leave anything resembling a tire patch without the morse code effect (wheel hop).

    Anyone notice that there are 2 (yes TWO) T/C buttons in the CTS-V? I believe they do the same thing, just weird that there are 2.

    Anyone else notice this?

    Ben, are the two you are referring to the steering wheel control and the one in the glove box? For some reason, I was thinking the one in the glove box was the only one that turned on competition mode after it was held for 5 seconds. ???

    Uh, no. Should be identical, I can get to what seems to be all the modes (incl. CDM) from either.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong (pls!).

    Re: Stabiltrack question

    I did not know there was one in the glove box.. i am going to go out and look at the car now...

    However, remember that the T/V button on the steering wheel was an addition for the V. The glove box switch is probably a carryover from the regular CTS since they dont have a steering wheel control dedicated to it. Why remove it if it wont hurt to leave it there?

    Does it actually work though?

    Yes, it's prolly a carry over from the reg CTS, and as far as I can tell it does work.

    I had an 03 cts and yes it was in the glove box. But i programmed my steering wheel to turn tracking control off as wheel.
