    Brakes NEVER BREAK. Unless you were the Incredible Hulk. But you ain't. Don't worry about breaking stuff. Worry about hitting the car in front of you.

    Well it seems that everyone has said it was the ABS system and not to worry. If that were true you would have felt the brake pedal pulsing, you didn't say anything about that. So if the pedal pulsed I agree it was the ABS but if it didn't then you have another problem.

    The ABS makes a clunking noise when it kicks in. No worries.

    It sounds like maybe your anti lock brakes kicked in. Its a safety feature in which a computer keeps you from slamming on the brakes so hard that you lose traction. If that is what it was, you probably didnt hurt anything. Do pay attention out there though. Driving demands a lot of attention and practice.

    There is no problem. That was just the automatic braking system (ABS).

    Sounds like the ABS kicking in (releasing the brakes and reapplying them so you do not skid and lose control). This is normal and good. In winter.on ice, you will appreciate it
