But, sense I like the car so much, I always made sure it was maintain no matter what, moreover now I'm having a chronic issue with the ABS- electronic brake system.

I've the dealership and other mechanics trouble shoot with little resolution due to GM has stop making the ABS-control module for this type car. I also just replaced it with a used one from the Junk Yard with no luck, this has also cause the (service engine soon light) to come on....If anybody have any Ideas Pls let me know...Kirk E-mail address: Fronzakirkp@yahoo.com
