BMW X3 Owners Manual: The concept

DSC prevents traction loss in the power wheels when driving off and accelerating.

DSC also recognizes unstable vehicle conditions such as fishtailing or nose-diving. Within the physical limits DSC helps to keep the vehicle on a steady course by reducing engine speed and by applying brakes to the individual wheels.

Note

Adjust your driving style to the situation

An appropriate driving style is always the responsibility of the driver.

The laws of physics cannot be repealed, not even with DSC.

Therefore, do not reduce the additional safety margin by driving in a risky manner.

Do not deactivate DSC when driving with roof load

Do not deactivate Dynamic Stability Control DSC when driving with roof load, e.g. roofmounted luggage rack.

Otherwise, driving safety is not given in driving- critical situation due to the elevated center of gravity.
