Most newer automotive vehicles from Acura, Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ferrari, Fiat, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Mercury, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Oldsmobile, Opel, Pontiac, Plymouth, Porsche, Saab, Saturn, Subaru, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo offer ABS brakes as either standard or optional equipment. To find out whether your car has an antilock brake system, and what type, read your owners manual. You can also check your instrument panel for a yellow ABS indicator light after you turn on the ignition. And when you buy, lease or rent a vehicle, always ask if it comes equipped with ABS.
When ABS brakes are activated, you may experience a slight vibration or a rapid pulsation of the brake pedal, almost as if the brakes are pushing back at you. At times, you may feel the pedal suddenly drop slightly. The valves in the ABS unit may make a grinding, scraping or buzzing noise. This means your antilock brake system is working. Continue to apply firm pressure and steer. Do not take your foot off the brake pedal.
