Brake Feel

Hi there

I have had my fiat 500 lounge for a couple of months now and I have been very happy with it. The other night my husband was driving and thought the brake pedal felt as if it was going down a bit far before the brakes started biting.

Can`t say I have noticed any difference since I got the car but am now wondering how the brake pedal feels in other examples.

The brakes do work and the car has only done 16,000 miles and the pedal feels as if it goes slightly less than half way before having an effect.

Fluid levels are ok and the car passed the mot without any advisories.

How does your pedal feel ?

Thanks.

Re: Brake Feel

It is the problem of rotors. With time it goes through heating and cooling process thousand of times so it losses its shape. If you do a lot of highway driving and you happen to be hard on your brakes, you'll run into this problem many times in the life of your car. For more satisfaction you can get it checked it from dealers also.
