ABS (Anti-lock Brake System)

The ABS system prevents the lock-up of wheels which may occur during sudden braking or braking on slippery road surfaces.

This helps prevent the loss of steering control and directional stability caused by wheel lock-up.

When the ABS system is operating, you may hear a chattering noise or feel a slight vibration in the brake pedal. This is normal when the ABS operates.

The ABS system will not operate when the vehicle speed is below approximately 6 mph (10 km/h).

Always use the utmost care in driving – overconfidence because you are driving a vehicle with the ABS system could easily lead to a serious accident.

- The ABS system does not always

- The ABS system does not always decrease stopping distance. You should always maintain a safe following distance from other vehicles.

- When driving on badly surfaced roads, gravel roads, icy roads, or over deep newly fallen snow, stopping distances may be longer for a vehicle with the ABS system than one without. When driving under these conditions, therefore, reduce your speed and leave ample distance from other vehicles.

- When you feel the ABS system operating, you should maintain constant brake pedal pressure.

Do not pump the brake pedal since doing so may defeat the operation of the ABS system.
