Default Re: Brakes feel that they do not grip well

I have a L200 and a 2010 Toyota Corolla. The Toyota's brakes start to grip within 1cm of pedal press, the Saturn's within 5cm. I've had both on the brake tester during the inspection and neither set of brakes has any kind of problem.

I also completely renewed the Saturn's brakes (everything except the servo!) and found it no better. Thankfully that job needed doing anyway so no money wasted!

I think the Saturn was just designed to have a good bit of pedal travel and that wonderfully spongy feel, which I hate, especially after driving a car which has next to none of either.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
