really? another mechanic just told my father the same thing too..... my brother said something about the rear wheels locking..... i don't know what to believ, but i am very nervous about driving it...... my work commute is over 60 miles round trip a day can you ellaborate a little bit on the abs system? thanks

The ABS is a system to keep the vehicle from locking up the brakes and slideing.when it fails they will lock up or not respond at all.it has a abs motor that controls it,when it goes bad the whole system fails which makes it very dangrous to drive,brake peddle will do 1 or 2 things,be hard as a rock to push or go down to floorboard with no breaking in eather way.ABS means antilock brakeing system.all i know to say is,if you keep driveing it ,you putting your life and others on the road in a dangerous situaiton.
