Excerpt: ...Table 2: q Identical q Make-Model Comparison of Vehicles ( except Mercedes-Benz ) In Model Years-With ESC and Without ESC-for Passenger Cars Model Years Model Years Make Model with with No ESC ESC ( Standard ) Acura 3.5RL 1997-1999 2000-2004 Audi A6 ( 2.7L ) Sedan 2000 2001-2004 Audi TT ( 1.8L ) 180hp Coupe 2000 2001-2004 BMW 740I 1997 1998-2001 BMW 740IL Sedan 1997 1998-2001 Buick Park Avenue Ultra 1997-1999 2000-2004 Cadillac DeVille Concours 1997 1998-1999 Chevrolet Corvette 1997 2001-2004 Lexus GS400 1998 1999-2000 Lexus LS400 1997-1998 1999-2000 Saab 9-5 Aero Sedan / Sport Wagon 2000-2001 2002-2004 In other cases, similar make-models ( except for the Mercedes-Benz vehicles which will be discussed separately ) were used for the comparison since the original models were redesigned, not available, or not of the same chassis generation during the transitional years ( Table 3 ). For instance, the 2000 Audi A4 ( 1.8L ), 2000 A4 ( 1.8L ) Quattro, and 2000 A4 ( 1.8L ) Avant Quattro models were not of the same chassis generation as their 2002-2004 models. ESC was offered as optional feature on the model year 2001 for those vehicles, and thus, that model year was not included in the study. The 2004 Audi A8 4.2L Quattro was not available; thus, the 2004 A8 L was included in the analysis instead. The 1997 and 1998-2004 Cadillac Seville SLS and STS models were also on a different chassis, and so did the 1997 and 1998-2004 Lexus GS300, 1997-1999 and 2001-2003 Oldsmobile Aurora ( 4.0L ), and 1999 and 2002-2004 Volkswagen GTI VR6 models. As previously mentioned and currently illustrated in Table 3, BMW installed ESC in certain 5, 7, and 8 series models as early as 1997 and had made it standard in all their models by 2001, but ...Original publisher: Washington, D.C.: U.S. Dept. of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,  OCLC Number: (OCoLC)235956255 Subject: Vehicles -- Design and construction -- Evaluation -- Statistical methods.
