1988 Buick REATTA Service Brakes, Hydraulic Antilock Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID207510
 Internal NHTSA #719711
 Model Year1988
 File date01/03/00
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThe german teves abs system installed on reattas are notorious for failures. I would be happy to pay $1000 to fix it and fix it right, but i have seen others spend upwards of $2000 to not fix the problem. I love this collectable car, but i fear driving it because of potential brake failure - and i certainly would never sell it with the known defect. There are not (and never were) many of these on the road, but the safety of people who do drive them is severely at risk. Please help!! *ak
