An ABS is intended to bring your vehicle to a quick stop, not only on dry roads but also on slippery ones, including those with ice. Cars equipped with ABS benefit from lower insurance costs and higher resale value. Insurers embrace them and consumers value the technology.
On the other hand, there are a few disadvantages of ABS. For example, they add cost to a new vehicle and are expensive to maintain. Each sensor costs hundreds of dollars to fix if it falls out of calibration. Other disadvantages include longer braking lengths under certain circumstances. Also, a clunking accompanies hard braking and ABS activation, and this could cause the driver to release the brake before the vehicle stops.
