Your car is fine, ABS & Traction Control: What the systems sound like

I heard this sound a couple times on my 2012 Prius when I took a fast U-turn. It sounds scary, like the car is breaking. It's a loud pulsating clunking sound. If you have a 2012 or newer vehicle, don't be alarmed when you hear it during potential slipping. It sounds the same as ABS because it is ABS, but more advanced because it can apply it to only the wheel that needs it. If you have never heard or felt what ABS is like you should test it once on your car. It's amazing. In an abandoned parking lot, go about 25 MPH, then slam on the breaks as hard as you can. You will be amazed at how fast the car can stop, and without skidding. The peddle will feel like it's vibrating too. At least it did when I tested it in the citizens police academy.
