ABS or no offense but knowing how to drive when you car goes into a slide. I personally can't stand abs. I find it kicks in way to often and is unpredictable. At least if you know it's not there you know you can react and the cars not going to try and take over. Out of the 6 cars I've owned only one has had abs and I hate it. Love the car hate the abs.... it's the lincoln btw.

Sorry about your crash none the less and glad everyone was ok

X2 my cobalt is the first car i have owned with ABS so i had gotten used to driving without it.. when sliding out in a front wheel drive, you need to rely on the gas most of the time to pull you out of it.

But anyways, sorry for the crash action! Like i have alwatys said, "if you have to replace, upgrade!"

X3 on the abs hate, I've learned to drive cars without abs... My LS has abs?

I'll gladly trade with you, I love pitching my car into slides... You aren't going to reduce your sliding iyou have your tires locked up and crank the steering wheel, it will still slide in the same direction until the car hooks up. I guess you've learned that now. Glad no one was hurt and that your car isn't wrecked.

Tom.
