Perfect topic to wiki! I'm going to turn mine off today because I stalled the car last week and it activated and I wasn't "prepared" for the long brake hold.....

Check out your owners manual. It has in there what ESC stands for. Electronic Stability Control, which would be your traction control.

It's not so much that I feel I'm missing out, just wondering if there is something wrong with my car.
Maybe you need a bigger hill? or have you tried to activate it? I read that if you repeat these steps you can turn it back on if you decide you want it again.
