Figuring out if a car as ABS

I've been eyeing this car for months:

https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-...ngId=455224341

It's actually at its second dealer. The first dealer didn't list ABS, this dealer does. I called and they said it does, but I'm a little skeptical. It's a 90 minute drive for me, and ABS is a must. Is there a way to figure out if this car does have it?

The easiest way would be for someone at the dealership to look at the option tag located inside the glove compartment door and see if JL9 (4 wheel anti lock )is listed it was a $400.00 option another choice would be to get the vin # and post it on the forum we have members who can decode it .From the pictures it looks like a real nice car at a decent price I would take the drive if it was me . Good luck !

Take the VIN number to any GM dealer service department, ask nicely and they will look it up for you and even print out the options.

Been there, done that.

Good luck!

Thanks for the responses everyone. The VIN is 1G2MB33B46Y103303 if anyone on here can run it and let me know, I would be so grateful!

Just some thoughts in this day and age clean low mileage Kappas with a reasonable price tag are getting hard to find if you're in no hurry than continue your search for a car with the options you want . Being in Pa. like Ohio most of these types of cars are put away for the winter or if on a dealer lot he /she will know that it will probably be sitting there till spring and this could work in your favor .I'm partial to Envious Solstices (Emerald Jewel Metallic ) when I bought mine the color really stood out for me and after I purchased it I found out Envious is a pretty rare color as far as Solstices go .As I stated above to drive 1 1/2 hours to look at a car (it's a big out of pocket expense ) to me is nothing .I drove 7 hours one way to Lancaster Pa. to buy a low mileage clean Grand Marquis luckily the car was as described but if it wasn't I would have chalked it up to experience and a nice road trip . From the pictures it looks like a very well kept car I think I'd do a road trip and check it out .
