abs has saved me many times. in my moms 99 villager i was on a turn and then traffic stopped hecka fast. so then i slammed the brakes and it pulsated and i can turn and control the car on that turn. in my accord which has no ABS when i turn on a sharp turn and slam on the brakes then the car would do one thing...go forward in the direction the car was going and it would be almost impossible to control the turn. i learned to counter this though by steering in harder and braking. hehe at least i dont fly off the rail! there are some cars that have bad abs imo. my friends chevey corsica has one sucky abs system. one day i disabled it cause i blew the fuse and she asked me to fix it. then i fixed it and test drove it and it didnt feel like abs...it was more like braking on and off at 1 second intervals. i felt i can control it better without the abs. i dont know if its possible to change out brake systems and not have the problem. i was thinking that abs is computer controlled. or maybe it just needs to be re-calibrated...or get hard stopping brakes. hehe i wish i can help but hopefully u will get it fixed.
