Now either you can check any other similar car, which you already mentioned that no friend of yours have one, or you can ask someone else to drive your car and rate the brakes. Now this person should not have a car like Mercedes . let him rate the brakes.
But the brakes of GLi and Altis are not that bad which your posts show.
non abs corolla breaks arnt v good to what ive noticed
SA/T refers to the total brake area available per ton of vehicle weight, and TCP refers to the area of rubber in contact with the road.
I am willing to bet that any model of the Corolla, or any modern car for that matter, has very good specifications for these two aspects.
I don't think the problem is the design of the car or its brakes.
Mod Edit: No off-topic replies please.Thank you.
stone @ pw changed the lining n droped the car just half an inch n the car stops where its supposed to
Its not the brake problem its more of a driving problem with the OP.
Well i would like to suggest is that dont get close to other cars and rely on brakes, practice braking at speed breakers so that you may get andaza that where car will stop
You can try hard braking on empty road, may be late night, and then see how brakes behave. You will feel slight pulsation in the brake paddle when ABS will activate, don't release the brake paddle and see does the car stops or not. If it don't then definitely brakes not working properly.
You can improve the braking system by asking your technician to clean you brakes and then flush the braking fluid.
Normally brake oil degrades with times by absorbing water and moisture inside it and at times Air gets trapped inside the brake lines which seriously degrade the braking capabilities of a car.
This can happen to a new car as well. I remember once I bought the new Honda City 2006, first thing I did was that I replace the tires with Yokohama but later I thought that car has very poor braking system. Later on once I performed a flush after 40000 km I saw an improvement in car braking capabilities. Since then I had been enjoying the braking of Honda City 2006 and never faced any such issues.
i also havng same problm in xli....xli brakes sucks..
Bhaiooo saari baatay choray within city 60 se uper chalani hi nai chaiye aur 60 pe tou ruk jaati hai
no need to worry abt tht if ur on a rollaInfact everytime I brake I am more concerned about the car behind me as it may not have as good brakes
on a serious note! dont overspeed with corolla or do races, until you ve ABS which gives some decency to brakes,this car is not made for speeding! drive safe.
there is an issue with corolla brakes after 2002 design, before that brakes were good.
if you are trying to use a car for speedind buy a car other than corolla.
Corolla serves you well, much better than any other car in villages due to its strong suspension, its best to use this feature, rather than speeding in the city.

Changing the Eurostars to a decent brand will make a hell lot of difference in braking, handling, ride and noise level.
Of all the things i have lost, I miss my MIND the most...
braking & stopping of car varies from driver to driver. No car manufacturer is stupid to compromise on the ABS technology.
imagine you are stopped at safe (your calculation) distance from other car in front and other one from rear bang and you hit in front who would you blame. of course the one who banged your rear, but you are equally responsible for not being at principally safe distance from car in front.

@capsat : very nice link!
New corolla have very fine brakes .GLi and altis brakes are perfect but XLI has some problem which is always there as it doesnt have ABS.U should compare ur gli to other gli
