What is the general consensus on the brakes that come with the punto?
This is because, compared my other car(renault scenic), the punto brakes seem to suck.

COmments are welcome.
Ways to remedy this problem are even more welcome:D

And to think you've both got higher spec brakes than the 'lesser' powered & manual non-sports Puntos! You should worry!

Could be a servo problem on the Selecta if they are that bad. Saying that, I believe my Panda Selecta has the same brake system as the Punto Selecta and they are scary in a Panda![xx(]

At least you lot have servo brakes! You should try driving a non-servo Panda - that's scary!
