Looking at an '07 G6, ABS Question

Hoping someone's around that can help me on this one. I have an '07 G6 that I'm looking to buy from a dealer.

The build order doesn't list ABS, but ABS is on the car. I asked for a build order, and it lists J65 for 4-wheel disc brakes, and no ABS.

How could a G6 have ABS if it's missing the feature code? This isn't something you can just drop into a car, it really has to be added at the factory...

FWIW, this was a fleet order, but still, I don't see GM just giving a fleet bonus ABS without at least coding it in. Could ABS appear on a G6 with J65 as the feature?

It is certified from a Chevy dealer, but I am still concerned that someone is playing around with the VIN and don't want to get burned.

it seems nobody has an answer to my question other than my probably-paranoid fear of VIN tampering. Still, am not comfortable buying this car until I have a good answer on it… so one would be appreciated.

Does it have the JL9 RPO? That's 4-wheel ABS, and what I have on my (former) fleet vehicle.

VIN is 1G2ZG58N574102918

And no, it does not appear to have JL9 in the RPO that I saw. That's what is so confusing about this one.

I put in your vin here http://www.compnine.com/vid.php?vin=1G2ZG58N574102918

and this came up:

J65 BRAKE SYSTEM,POWER,FRONT AND REAR DISC 4-WHL DISC BRK(J65)

I say test drive it... go about 15mph then slam on the brakes, they'll either lock up or not.

2007 PONTIAC G6 GT

I wasn't really worried about ABS functioning on the car, that's easy to test. My concern is GM balking on honoring the warranties if anything in the break system goes bad, saying that the car has been tampered with or modded out of warranty.

I was hoping someone from Detroit would chime in and say something like "oh, these fleet orders were half-baked and sometimes we threw in stuff that wasn't on the RPO."

Short of that, I start fearing modding or VIN tampering.
