Something to keep in mind,
If the ABS system is disabled the brake system reverts back to typical breaking without ABS.

Question

BUick Reatta? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buick_Reatta Is this the Buick version (not mid engine) of the Pontiac Fiero? Wouldn't even bother, cars like this are nonexistant in ME, wouldn't want to even see one on the road. How 'bout the Geo Storm (photo) OK back then (nice little car) but to put money into one? They all completely rusted into oblivion, the experimental years lol.......

More than likely the motor is shot, over 100K miles maybe, 17 second 1/4 mile in its prime?
