fwiw: my 05 GTO does the same thing as some people are reporting. in my case, with the low-speed braking in hot weather, often in stop & go, maybe it's that wiring issue that sirpontiac mentions. it's done for at least half of it's 9 years.
i should check that wiring it if i can find a nice way to get under there. (i won't.) . there's never been a brake fluid level issue.
i'm used to it now - the abs 'misfires' on the right front wheel, feels like it is removing braking power from that one wheel. the abs goes wild on that one wheel, that's for sure. so it reduces braking on that one wheel. always at low speed and always when very HOT. the other wheels keep braking the car, but it feels exactly like 'sliding on gravel' that others are reporting with their caddys. and it is sort of alarming/scary - enough that it could cause someone to release the brake. ABS in normal operation sometimes makes weird noises - never back off the brakes when it does that - if anything push harder. in my car's problem case it is a "abs misfire", there is no traction-loss at all, but the one wheel acts as if its on ICE.
i've reported it to the dealer on probably 10 visits for other stuff, they can never recreate it, no codes are ever stored. rarely i do see it store an ABS code, the one for wheel-speed-sensor-wacky-reading, and the ABS self-disables.
the workaround in my case is to keep braking - standing on the brake solves the issue, the other 3 wheels brake the car. it only happens at low speeds on hot days, dry roads, intermittent. so 3 wheels are plenty to brake the car effectively in slow traffic like that.
