    Default Breaks of honda city

    I was driving at 110 kmph and had to apply sudden breaks to avoid collission with a mini truck in front. The breaks behaved in very good manner, my car dint skid or lost control and stopped in very short distance.
    It is far batter than toyota corolla(karalla)

    I dont know if I should call you a good driver or a reckless one but, you must be good to stop a car without ABS in the circumstances you mention, if you floor the breaks, they will lock and make the car skid. So you have to press the pedal easily but on the other hand you need to stop quickly so you have to press it hard. Hence, you have to be exactly on the balance.

    But driving a car with rear drum brakes at 110 km where some trucks are driving or standing is indeed reckless driving in my opinion.

    So I think even if Honda had to leave out ABS they should have given disc brakes at the rear wheels for the City because that car can carry a lot of momentum and speed. Anything with an engine above 1000cc should have all discs. And anything above 1500cc should have ABS. Or they should be too heavy to go beyond 70-80 km/h.
    Waiting for the day people start obeying laws of the road while on the road... sigh!

    man, a lot of other factors are involved in braking distances... tyres...type of road, mitti on road...pani on road etc etc... and ofcourse human reaction time!

    totally *** post.

    you dont drive a corolla so why are you bashing it. wish i was a mod just to close topics like this.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.

    4 wheel disc brakes only work well if used with EBD (elelctronic brake force distribution) and ABS (anti lock brakes) otherwise, it is only a marketing stunut, think of it, when you brake, the weight of the car is transferred forward so you need more brake bias towards front. If you have same brake force, then your rear wheels will lock prematurely and cause you to skid
