The survey "ESC in Car sales" aiming at evaluating the quality of information and advice provided by car dealerships in Europe was conducted within the framework of the international EuroTest programme and under the leadership of Germany's automobile club ADAC who was responsible for the performance and methodological management of the test.
A total of 18 motoring clubs in 17 European Countries take part in EuroTest 2008: AA (UK), ACI (Italy), ACL (Luxembourg), ACP (Portugal), ADAC (Germany), AL (Finland), AMZS (Slovenia), ANWB (the Netherlands), FDM (Denmark), AC (France), HAK (Croatia), M (Sweden), NAF (Norway), OAMTC (Austria), RACC (Spain), RACE (Spain), Touring (Belgium) and TCS (Switzerland). Together with the FIA in Brussels, these automobile clubs represent some 34 million road users in Europe.
The test was funded by the FIA Foundation (Fédération Internationale de l´Automobile). The FIA Foundation is an independent UK registered charity which manages and supports an international programme of activities promoting road safety, environmental protection and sustainable mobility, as well as funding specialist motor sport safety research.
