I've been wondering this too. ABS was nowhere to be found on any of the Altimas I looked at. No dealers in Dallas had them. Maybe one or two, but no 3.5SE optioned anywhere near how I wanted one.

Can you install a system from a wrecked 3.5, or even buy one aftermarket? ABS has saved me before and I would like to have it.

Candyman.. where the hell have you been?? I've missed all of your insightful posts.. ;) Why wouldn't you want all the safety features?? You're probably paying an arm and a leg for insurance.. If I was you.. I'd have every safety feature the car had to offer..

No way will there ever be aftermarket ABS for anything. TC uses ABS wheelspeed sensors so you need ABS for TC.

This really pissed me off...

...glad someone brought up the subject.

It seems like convenience package is way more important here, at least in Texas than ABS (safety). When I was buying the Alty, I realized that it will take forever to get the car that I wanted (2.5 manual) and there was not a single one with ABS within 500 miles (if dealer is to beleive).

Why is this?

You know - even cheaper cars new in Europe come with ABS standard, not even an option?

Anyway... I am sure it is not cost efective to add as you would have to change the computer too...

My guess is most ABS cars go to the snow belt. Also most white cars go south, black cars go north, etc. etc.
