Anti-lock brake test: 2012 Chevrolet Cruze (wet)

45mph-0 in the rain. ABS slow to kick in, rear-end felt nervous. Not to keep touting the Focus, but the rudimentary beam axle in the Cruze is at fault here...the Watt's link (Z-link if you're in GM marketing) does little for directional stability. Focus has a Control Blade (trailing arm link) independent rear suspension and it keeps it more planted.

New Holland, ABS SuperSteer™
The antilock braking system, available on T7000 tractors, manages each wheels brakes individually to improve stopping power, increasing manoeuvrability and improving safety when transporting heavy equipment. Another safety advantage: a hill holder engages the brakes to prevent the tractor rolling back during hill starts. If that wasnt enough, the system also allows the tractor to turn on a sixpence by pivoting on a controlled and slowed down rear inside wheel; the operator can even control the amount of slip to eliminate soil damage.

Mitsubishi L200's Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
Have you ever seen an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) in action? Mike Brewer demonstrates how the ABS on the L200 makes a real difference when it counts by regulating braking effort to prevent the wheels locking.





ABS vs. No ABS - Episode 4
Basically a re-make of Episode 1, with real life footage. A lot of people claim that since past episodes are 3D representations, therefore are fake or innacurate. I know the difference would be much different if surface was wet, oily, with gravel, mud, etc... My videos are based on day to day conditions. Also I´m just trying to make a single point : "It is possible to stop on a shorter distance without ABS" I know it lets you steer, and all that stuff, but right now I´m not dealing with it (maybe later). ABS is a safety feature but it always comes to the driver to manouver correctly under dangerous circumnstances and take the right decitions to avoid an accident. (like lowering your speed if road is on low traction conditions, or not speeding while getting to a blind intersection, etc...) Here´s me demonstrating what I´ve shown in previous episodes. I´m the driver. Notes: - In 2nd Threshold braking, I missed my braking point (a bush I used as reference) so I had to brake a bit harder, you can see ABS is disabled because on the last second my rear wheel locks. - I changed locations because the tests where on different days, I have to find a nice lone road to do them, and the tests of threshold braking I made on the 1st location lacked a lot of references and was very hard to brake always at the same speed, also I had less road to speed up and keep that speed before braking. - I lose speedometer when I disable ABS, how do I know I´m reaching the same speed? well, I perform an ABS test and look at the tachometer to see how much revolutions at certain gear I need for that particular speed (in this case it was 3500 revs in 2nd gear for 55-60 kmph) - The voice is all weird because its from a text to speech engine, it is not me talking. I wanted to narrate stuff instead of typing everything like on past episodes. The car is a standard production car. Opel Astra with stock brakes, braking pads are not new (in fact they need to be replaced) Wheels are Michelin hydroedge, which are great to avoid hydroplaning and they´re very hard, so they last a long way. There´s no flat stop after the full lock test.

Chevrolet CRUZE Safety Specs Video
This video highlights all of the great safety features of the 2011 Chevy Cruze. You can learn more by visiting www.blog.maguireauto.com Chevrolet's new Cruze is a global compact sedan that has been refined for America with an emphasis on fuel economy. The Cruze features two new small-displacement four-cylinder engines; a 140-hp 1.4L turbo, or a 138-hp naturally-aspirated 1.8L. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the LS and soon to be released ECO trims; all others feature a six-speed automatic transmission. Available safety features include ten airbags, antilock brakes, stability control, traction control and anti-theft alarm with engine immobilizer. The Cruze can be equipped with features such as heated leather power seating, sunroof, remote start, satellite radio, navigation system and automatic climate control. The Cruze is all-new for 2011. The rollover test facility is among the newest safety facilities in the GM network. It was opened in 2006 and cost $10 million to construct and is the only such facility owned and operated by an automaker in North America. The engineers can conduct an array of different tests including a trip test to evaluate what happens when the vehicle slides sideways into a curb or other obstruction. A ramp is available to test what happens if the vehicle rides up over a guard-rail and other reconfigurable structures can evaluate the results of running off into a ditch. Approximately 64 percent of the Cruze body is made from high strength steels. The structure also makes use of tailor rolled steel for stampings on the B-pillar. Tailor rolled steel blanks are made from sheets of various thickness to provide additional strength where needed while eliminating weight where it isn't necessary. The Cruze is the first car in its class with 10 standard air bags, including knee air bags for both front seat occupants, side curtain air bags and seat back mounted side airbags at all four outboard positions. The Cruze has also received five-star crash safety ratings in Korean, Chinese, Australian and European NCAP tests. On the EuroNCAP, the Cruze got the highest score ever recorded for a compact vehicle, and GM fully expects to get the highest rating in the U.S. as well. In addition to the protection provided by the body and all of the air bags, the Cruze also has standard electronic stability control to help prevent crashes from happening in the first place. After a crash the OnStar system automatically notifies emergency responders to provide assistance. Thanks to the crash-worthiness technology developed by General Motors over the past several decades, the Cruze could be one of the safest vehicles ever built. And the lessons that its team learns today will be applied to vehicles for years to come.
