Thread: ABS what's up

    typically the abs has the most issues on ice. On one hand you dont want to lock up the brakes on ice either but the abs just keeps going. ABS takes some of the skill out of braking in some situations (and yes there is skill required in old school braking). That being said you shouldn't feel much pulsing unless you mash the pedal. If you feel it even in light braking there might be an issue

    I like ABS brakes on my scooter, but as far as the truck goes hell no! My dad ordered his 05' Silverado without ABS brakes, so we got lucky there. I hate the ABS brakes in the snow though, especially in a 2wd rwd truck.

    My 2006 Silverado has a low speed ABS acitavtion problem. I was told there was a recall on earlier models, but not my year. Check to see if yours is covered.
