Hyundai Ioniq: Braking System / Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)

Hyundai Ioniq (AE) 2017-2021 Owner's Manual / Driving your vehicle / Braking System / Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)

The Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) is a function of the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. It helps ensure the vehicle stays stable when accelerating or braking suddenly on wet, slippery and rough roads where traction over the four tires can suddenly become uneven.

WARNING

Take the following precautions when using the Vehicle Stability Management (VSM):

  • ALWAYS check the speed and the distance to the vehicle ahead. The VSM is not a substitute for safe driving practices.
  • Never drive too fast for the road conditions. The VSM system will not prevent accidents. Excessive speed in bad weather, slippery and uneven roads can result in severe accidents.

VSM operation

VSM ON condition

The VSM operates when:

  • The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is on.
  • Vehicle speed is approximately above 9 mph (15 km/h) on curve roads.
  • Vehicle speed is approximately above 12 mph (20 km/h) when the vehicle is braking on rough roads.

When operating

When you apply your brakes under conditions which may activate the ESC, you may hear sounds from the brakes, or feel a corresponding sensation in the brake pedal. This is normal and it means your VSM is active.

NOTICE

The VSM does not operate when:

  • Driving on a banked road such as gradient or incline.
  • Driving rearward.
  • ESC OFF indicator light is on.
  • EPS (Electric Power Steering) warning light ( ) is on or blinks.

WARNING

If ESC indicator light (Hyundai Ioniq. Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)) or EPS warning light (Hyundai Ioniq. Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)) stays on or blinks, your vehicle may have a malfunction with the VSM system. When the warning light illuminates, have your vehicle checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer as soon as possible.

Driving with wheels and tires with different sizes may cause the ESC system to malfunction. Before replacing tires, make sure all four tires and wheels are the same size. Never drive the vehicle with different sized tires and wheels installed.

    Rear Seats

    Folding the rear seat

    The rear seatbacks can be folded to facilitate carrying long items or to increase the luggage capacity of the vehicle.

    WARNING

    Never allow passengers to sit on top of the folded down seatback while the vehicle is moving. This is not a proper seating position and no seat belts are available for use. This could result in serious injury or death in case of an accident or sudden stop. Objects carried on the folded down seatback should not extend higher than the top of the front seatbacks. This could allow cargo to slide forward and cause injury or damage during sudden stops.
