That's a nice looking car you have there. I am sure that you will enjoy it.
Actually ABS is not relevant in this car. The brakes are so undersized/ineffective that locking the wheels is very difficult. Maybe this is some type of brilliant design by Fiat Engineering?
But in all seriousness, be aware of the braking limitations when driving fast. I would recommend that you take the car for a spin on an empty portion of an expressway, and try some panic braking to familiarize yourself with the vehicles limitations.
By the way, I parked next to a bright red Palio 1.6 at the Reliance Mall underground parking last night. Was that you?

Superb choice.... coz I've booked myself a Black MJD SDX!!!
Loved the parking lot pic. It speaks volumes of what a FIAT Palio gives you which no other hatch can.... EXCLUSIVITY!!!!
When I tell people that I've booked a Palio 9.99 out of 10 have called me a fool and say that I've lost it and what not. But I'm honestly enjoying it coz after all the bashing there is always an agreement that it is a great car. And I'm going to be one of the very very few who are going to own one!
Now....... waiting to see that baby!
