Anti–lock brake system (ABS)*Anti–lock brake system (ABS)*  - Starting and driving - Mitsubishi Carisma Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Carisma

Environmental conditions can have an effect on braking. During sudden braking when there is snow, ice, oil, water etc. on the road surface, a skid may occur. In this situation, steering control and braking effectiveness is reduced and the stopping distance is increased. The vehicle may also go into an uncontrolled spin.

The ABS helps prevent the wheels from locking during braking, thus maintaining directional stability, ensuring controllability and providing optimum braking force.
