Traction control yes. This feature is designed to prevent you from losing control in ALL driving conditions. Not just in bad weather. What is Eco? HTH. -Jim

ECO is another button on the console.

Just did some research on that ECO button. Apparently it changes how the transmission shifts. It will supposedly give you better gas mileage. The article I just read said about 1 more MPG. But it will also require you to really step on the gas pedal when merging into freeway traffic because of decreased acceleration. With that said, if it were me, I'd leave it off. HTH. -Jim
