Does the Ford C-Max Come Standard with ABS?

Not too many years ago, cars were plagued with brake locking incidents that caused more accidents than any other car part. During an emergency that requires a quick stop, drivers tend to stomp on the brake pedal and continue to apply pressure to get out of the situation. The result was a lockup of one or more wheels that would either throw the car into an uncontrolled skid or flip it over when it hit an obstacle.

To relieve the wheel locking problem, engineers looked at what experienced drivers did when in the same situation and found that pumping the brake pedal was the best way to keep from locking wheels. The ABS does the same thing by monitoring wheels for rotation and applying and releasing brakes. At Sheehy Ford of Richmond, our technicians monitor the ABS at each service to assure the sensors are working correctly.
