^ exactly why I won't buy a new car

I think that a car that "drives" for you is sad The longer this type of design exists, the more people don't need to learn to drive properly and will crash as soon as one of these systems fail in some way.

This is a big issue for me as I ABSOLUTELY HATE nanny items in cars!

Speaking of ABS, did Ford make NE Mustangs w/o ABS, specifically 04 GTs? I stumped a dealer service manager and his mechanics with that one a few years back.

No, it would not. Check the wires.

Well, it might. It depends on the tire size if it was kept the same diameter and if all 4 wheels are the same diameter. If he has like, 245/45/17 up front and 275/45/17 in back, the back tires will be taller, thus causing the rear speed sensors to read differently than the front, and trip the ABS light.
