Default 06 Redline Disc Brakes?

hey guys, new to the forum. took a test drive in a fwd 6 vue this weekend. nice car, thinking hard on purchasing one. havent seen a redline in person, but interested in this option as well. one thing i havent been able to determine is whether it has 4 wheel discs? the dealer said it does, but havent seen info on this anywhere else.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If your dealer doesn't know what kind of brakes are on their vehicles, they need to be better educated about their product. If there is another dealer in town, ask them the same question, see what their response is... sometimes the quality of the staff varies greatly...

There is a 4-wheel disc conversion from Stainless Steel Brake Company www.ssbc.com but I have never seen it installed... You can also get a front-disc only upgrade for a bit less...

But, IME, the brakes stop pretty darn well. Even fully loaded, if you lay on the brakes (especially in a Red Line with those fat, meaty tires), it grabs hold and you gotta hold onto your neck or it will come off your shoulders!
