Side-Wind Compensation

Side-wind compensation gives Volkswagen’s electromechanical power steering (EPS) extra comfort and safety. This feature helps you when you are driving in a continuous side wind or on a severe camber. If the EPS control unit registers continuous countersteering, the power-assisted steering adjusts itself automatically and compensates. The fact that you no longer have to actively countersteer takes the strain away and produces much-improved driving comfort.
