    I had my brake fluid flushed at a local midas workshop. Since the time
    I got the fluid replaced, sometimes when I approach a stop sign or a
    red signal, when i start to hit the brakes slowly (happens only when
    speed is around 10 mph), I get the brake to sound like the ABS is
    kicking in, however the braking seems to work on the car...

    I tool it back to Midas, this time the mechanic bleeded the brakes
    manually instead of with the machine (suspecting any air bubbles in
    the system). But the problem persists, can anyone guess what is going
    on.. ?

    Are all your tires the same size and is your tire pressure carefully
    checked? There is a TSB about that somewhere. Start looking here:

    All the tires are of the same size, Michellin - OEM recommended. I
    have not checked the tire pressure in a couple of months, let me try
    do to that tomorrow. Somehow the coincidence that the brake fluid has
    been changed and the problem coming up is making me believe that the
    brake fluid flush may need something special for the ABS. I will look
    into the TSB's thnx anyways..
