My 2010 SF is my first car with any sort of electronic rescue device...first car with ABS, Stability Control, and Tire Pressure Monitoring. The stability control that Hyundai uses (I think it's by Bosch) is fabulous. The county was doing some road work a few streets up from us and didn't think it would be necessary to warn anybody about the steel plate they put down overnight. Well I came cooking around that corner right off the main road and since it was raining, that steel plate was soaking wet and as anybody will tell you, those steel plates turn to ice when wet. As soon as I realized that the front end was starting to plow wide (towards the ditch), the ESP brought the back into line just like that and I continued on my way.
