Coasting to a stop behind a school bus in light snow, my brakes started grinding and locked up. Only avoided hitting the car in front of me by steering into the oncoming lane. (Fortunately, no oncoming traffic on this side road.) It did it again a few minutes later when I was slowing for a turn – again, at low speeds in light snow conditions. That time I was able to steer into the margin.
It’s a 2005 Honda Civic EX (manual transmission), and it supposedly has ABS brakes. I know ABS can be noisy – but I’m keen on the braking part, which didn’t happen! Any thoughts on what’s going on?
