Question about Chevrolet Malibu
There really is no problem driving without the abs system. it isnt a part of your normal braking system. what abs is does is when slamminng the brakes, usually at relatively high speeds, it pumps your brakes so that the wheels will not lock up and cause your wheels to skid(ABS Anti-lock Brake System). this pumping also lets you manuver while your car is braking. without the abs system, your car will brake with the normal brakes. if it makes you feel comfortable, many new cars(basic cars) dont come with abs as it is considered an "extra." i would recommend fixing the abs if you have the money, because it can be the difference between hitting a car and not, but if you don't, then just take a little bit more precaution when braking. And if someone tells you to urgently fix it because it causes your car to become unstable, don't listen to them. ABS is a relatively new technology(came out in the 90's if im not mistaken) and cars have been around much longer. previous cars didnt have abs and the world was not thrown into chaos because of it. so like i said, if you have the money, you should fix it, but if money is tight, then its no biggie. like passanger airbags, better to have em, but not necesarry. hope this hleps. goodluck
