    not necessarily true!

    Cars with ABS as standard all had 5 spokes
    but....

    Cars who had it fitted as a dealer/factory option may still have had 4 stud wheels.

    There are a few guys on here with 4 stud SXi's etc who have ABS, and IIRC at least 1 who has ABS on rear drums (with 4 stud)

    Is there an ABS self-test light on the dash at startup?
    Is there an ABS pump just under, and to the rear, of the battery?
    Does the ABS light illuminate when the wheels do lock up?
    Can you feel a constant drumming on the brake pedal when they lock up?

    Answer yes to all of those and you have ABS
