THIS IS AN ONGOING PROBLEM WITH MY 2002 TOYOTA CAMRY WITH THE ABS SYSTEM. THE ABS SYSTEM ENGAGES MUCH TOO EASILY. THIS SYSTEM ENGAGES ON SAND, LEAVE OR ANY LOOSE SURFACE. AND WHEN IT ENGAGES MY CAR ESSENTIALLY HAS NO BRAKES. RECENTLY I WAS ON A WET SLUSHY ROAD APPROACHING AN INTERSECTION AND UPON APPLYING BRAKES THE ABS ENGAGED. THE SYSTEM SHUTTERED AT A VERY HIGH FREQUENCY AND HAD NO BRAKING FUNCTION. I HAD TO TURN THE CAR INTO THE SNOW BANK IN ORDER TO STOP THE VEHICLE BEFORE CROSSING THE LINE OF TRAFFIC AT THE INTERSECTION. I DID INFORM THE DEALER OF WHAT I THOUGHT TO BE A WEIRD WAY THAT AN ABS SHOULD OPERATE, BUT THEY MEALY INSTRUCTED THAT IT IS WAS OPERATING AS DESIGN. I AM ONLY RECENTLY BECOMING AWARE THAT THIS IS A FAULTY DESIGN, ESPECIALLY IN LIGHT OF THE RECOGNITION THAT PRIUS AND LEXUS HAVING SIMILAR PROBLEMS. SINCE I BOUGHT THE CAR I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT THIS IS THE WAY ABS OPERATES AND WAS MY ARGUMENT WHY I DON'T THINK THE ABS IS A GOOD IDEA. BUT NOW I KNOW IT A POOR DESIGN.
