Default 2002 WRX + ABS + Bumps = Dirty Drawers?

Scott Shadle from NHTSA is looking for Test Candidate Cars.

Primarily Interested in Washington DC/Metro area or Columbus Ohio residents.

If you can reliably recreate this problem please call him.

202 366 2583 office
240 475 0589 mobile

They will want to evaluate the car and then suitable candidates will be leased and taken to Columbus Ohio Testing Facility.

I have never been able to reliably repeat this phenomenom and now that I have KDWSes on the car it is even less apparent.

Things are happening people!

(sorry cross-posting, trying to spread the word!)

what is the problem? ABS kicking in on far side of bumps? Mine does that all the time.

I can show him on mine pretty easily as well. Everyday on my way to work, theres this one stoplight that I have to anticipate, or I will sail into the intersection.
I'm hoping that switching to SS brakelines and better fluid will help. It sure did in my rs .

I just had this happen to me 5 minutes ago.

I think the key to reproducing it is to be braking gently on rough pavement. The ABS kicks in, and thinks you're on ice because it slipped with minimal braking force.

I've solved the problem by always braking hard.

Now that you mention it, this probably adds something to the equation. Although I have had a couple of scary stops in the rain on that hill. (C'MON LADY! TURN!!!!!)

Army Trail and I believe bloomingdale road, brake just right and you can do it. It is quite a scary thing, and it wasn't fixed in 03 that is for sure!

Eh, just get off the highway at south joslyn rd going south on 75 and come to the stop sign kinda hot. ABS goes off every time.

That and it happens at the stop sign at gainey and miller in Flint.

I'm in Columbus and don't have a WRX but have an 02 OBS and can recreate this ABS problem easily, it may take a couple of bumps to get it to do it but it WILL do it....That's why I've left the fuse out....ABS sucks on our cars!
