I have always had trouble with the ABS system and so did my father-in-law who drove car before me. ABS was always very sensitive to activating and when activated vehicle very difficult to stop. I have be driving 40 years and never owned a more difficult vehicle to stop. Had brakes serviced less than 10,000 miles ago at dealer, have brand new michelins. Does not matter, I see a lot of complaints on internet about this Cavalier ABS system and it is dangerous.
