As I look back, I'm not sure how often the ABS would've made a huge difference in vehicle dynamics. It doesn't have stability control. The inherent front-end push keeps oversteer at bay (unless you toss it into a 4-wheel slide -- but ABS does nothing sideways). Rain and snow tests have proven no distinct advantage.

The electrical tape is waiting...

abs had no distinct advantage in the snow or rain??
