Hi All,

Today I drove on some pretty bad ice for the first time really since getting the car. When I would brake somewhat hard (happened twice) there was almost a crunching noise (no, it wasnt the snow or ice crunching). Is this to do with the stability control, or some other feature?

Sorry for the vague post, just wondering if anyone knows what I am on about.

ABS, its supposed to feel that way.
Yes, that's correct.
What you're hearing/feeling the the brakes pulsing off/an on very quickly to give as much stopping force as possible with locking up the wheels. KIATECH, a member here, can probably tell you in more detail than I can, what's involved with ABS braking.
