NHTSA estimates that with mass production the average cost for installation of the ESC will be around $111 per vehicle on vehicles that already include ABS brakes. Currently the cost for optional equipment is around $300 to $800.
Is it safe to drive with the ESC light on?
Since electronic stability control is essentially an extension of ABS and TCS, it’s typically safe to drive a vehicle that has an ESC malfunction. However, you should be able to continue driving the vehicle as if it didn’t have stability control. If you do, just be especially careful on wet pavement and sharp corners.
