    I have never seen a car that didn't have both front and rear if it was equipped with anti lock brakes.

    So for kicks i goggled a motor picture of the 2014 Mirage and indeed you can see that the ABS pump has six lines. Two lines for the front brakes, two lines for the rear brakes and two lines to the slave cylinder.

    So the answer is no, the Mirage has both front and rear anti lock brakes.



    2014 Motor Picture: The abs pump is the sliver box on the left of the engine bay with the six metal lines coming from it. Four of the lines are green and two are black.

    My family had an F150, 1994 I believe, that just had rear wheel ABS. It wasn't much good, but I suppose it did keep the back from swinging around. Glad they got rid of that idea!

    Not a problem, any time.

    And an f150 hu, that's crazy. I would love to ask the engineer in charge of that decision of what to do in the event of an emergency, do you lay on the brakes or pump them? Lol

    I noticed this when I was in the US in 93 (so early days of ABS). Some of the utes only had ABS front.
