    without ABS new corolla brakes suck (full time unless u r kind of a lady driver or old thats over 60). they dont have the STOPPING POWER just skidding power and inemergency u tend to brake with full force and skid out of control. which the new corrola loves to do. i guess people who say that xli gli OD brakes are ok are those who have never slammed their brakes just for fun. they will know what i mean when they do it, take it to 60km and slamm u r brakes on a empty wide road let it skid for 3-4 seconds then u will know that it just keeps on skiding, you will say to urself it should have stopped by now but it wont that what the problem is, especially if u use the genral tyres other tires fare a bit better but the car still skids on. depneding on road conditions it may turn on any side while skiding or even stay in a line but a long line. dont worry one test will not ruin ur tyres

    with ABS they are kind of ok for most driving conditions. (not really bad nor really good)but the ABS kicks in real quickly

    Just for comparison the orignal brakes of 2001 city were the best i had driven in a mid sized car, it is hard to control the braking (stopping) force avaible in that car

    2001 corolla brakes were good for petrol versons for deisel its was just ok.
    i feel deisel requires more powerful brakes to stop.cause of its weight and engine torque features.

    reason for poor brakes new corrolla: manufacturer / design fault (both due to indus mostly but a little due to toyota as well)
    people at indus has just raised the car to get the road clearence and the stiffer shocks for persumeably road conditions this F**Ked up the design /safty features of the Japs. and toyo guys may be have made a choice fault in the brake design and power. may be like us they choose the cheapest possiblity out of the all options avialable
    an advice:
    be a corrolla owner but be just have the guts to describe the faults in ur car

    thanks sir, i totally beleive in that
    i have seen people here who would say that the car they have is the best in the world does 20 km per liter and does 0-100 in 5 sec, they have done 180KM easy in the car and it was going further
    some of them when they sale the car and get an new one say the same things bout the new one and the reverse bout the old one that it was trash
    my car history : datsun 120y 1980, cultus CNG 2002, Daewoo 1993, Altis 2005 i feel all cars have plus and minus. but if u dont know the faults and limits of ur car u r not a good driver

    Hi guys it has been for 15 months now and I have not faced any problem with Xli brakes. Drive safely, the brands wouldn't save you.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    i wont admit,,autophile wont admit that brakes are bad,,,,,,Spectra wont admit that brakes are good,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,so,,whats the solutuion??,,,,i think i described it in firsr paragraph,,,

    Simple solution,
    go to any dealership of corolla and meet there technical head with a refference so he tells the truth only.
    Just ask,"Sir is there any complains of brakes in rolla from the users".

    when u do that, post the answer that he gives. Cause i did get a chance to do that in short he will say
    "Why the hell do u think we added a 90,000 rupee ABS unit in the saloons"
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....
