A guy at work claims all MGM in the mid 90s and up had ABS. But my 99MGM has no ABS and never appears to have had it at all. Anyone else know?

Not really. ABS became standard in 03.
Prior to that, it was an option (albeit a common option).

What is rare is a 03+ P71 WITHOUT ABS. They could be ordered without (knocking $50 off the price), as government agencies were exempt from the NHTSB regulation requiring ABS. But it was an incredibly stupid thing to do, so I don't think any departments actually did it...

Ok so after 03 they all had it. Maybe thats what he was thinking. I dont mind it but my front brake hose is funny because of this. All the tip on here are for ABS cars my years.

ABS started being standard on P71 in 2005.
