In a worrying development, ABS (now standard on Saab) looks set to become an option once again. For a marque that is renowned for safety this marks the start of GM really screwing it up. Read the horror report here (http://www.quicken.com/small_business/news/index-article.dcg?story=/news/stories/dj/20020410/on20020410000809.htm&department=0)

Just looked at the link:
the company is eliminating or making optional a range of standard equipment that it believes customers don't value enough to carry it on all models.[/b]Can't believe some people don't value ABS. Probably even more important than air -bags. Would have thought prevention was better than the cure?
It has certainly saved me more than once in the past.

Unless I can't read.. the article says :
*All Cadillac and Saab models will keep side airbags as standard, and antilock brakes will remain standard on the Pontiac Bonneville, Buick Le Sabre, Chevrolet Corvette, as well as all Cadillac and Saab models.[/b]

is, I believe, the correct icon for embarrassed. Looks like I ballsed up this time - but watch out, the b'stards have already made heated seats an option!
