I concur with the VSA off if off road, getting out of deep snow etc. I had it on my FWD CRV and it sucked! my TPMS went wonky and then the VSA off button wouldn't work. I had to put a switch on the VSA fuse for getting up my driveway in winter because if your TPMS is broke you can't turn of the VSA and if your wheels spin even a little it cuts engine power. Not the best thing for a vehicle that has to drive in a Canadian winter and is only FWD. So far the 11 Pilot EX 4WD with X-Ice Michelins has gone through anything I needed it too. Driveway with 24" of snow, slow down, drop to 2nd, push VTM-4 Lock, push and HOLD VSA until it beeps and then give her the beans and up the 35 deg grade of drive and into the garage she goes. I will say that the VSA is nice when at speed and roads get iffy, it kicks in and tells you to slow down, or at least if I'm doing the speed limit and it kicks in on the back roads I know to slow down because something was slippery. But at slow speeds trying to get through deep snow it just frustrates the heck out of you and I am glad you can shut it off in those situations.
