    Officials from Toyota Sahara Motors firstly said it is a manufacturing fault for this model.
    After checking our Corolla GLi 2007, they totally refused that of any fault in our Corolla's braking, and said it is perfect, where as we still face problem while sudden braking or somewhat hard braking that car slips going everywhere.

    I have heard by adjusting brakes by adding % distribution to rear wheels, the problems are resolved, but not sure if it will result in success.

    Anyone with this problem resolved?
    I am back & still "Keeping my fingers crossed"

    I'd suggest you to get them ABS from the company if possible. They will upgrade the ECU and install the Anti-Lock braking system. Waise tu in 08 model i heard k ABS have introduced already in Xli and Gli Models but so far the news are confirmed.

    Yes Corolla breaks are not good at sudden breaks, but what about City, nobody talks about it, while I myself was hit by a new City from rear after it skidded off, the same way Corolla does. Also my friend's Baleno breaks behave same way.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Hi,

    1. Put in bigger tires
    2. Beef up the FRONT suspension
    3. Add a beefier anti-roll bar to the front suspension
    4. Add some negative camber to the rear tire after you've done the above two things (half a degree would do just fine).

    It is NOT the brakes fault entirely. The suspension fails during the brakes because in Pak people want a bigger ground clearance!

    Regards,
    MSKHAN

    dont waste your money on abs and other stuff just get soft tires fixed in ur car I would suggest dunlop lemans or Somitumo / tomisomo dont remember the name and get the breaks serviced once 10k kms or 6 months and ur car will be fine and avoid speeding on it.

    My japanese corolla has front discs and rear drum brakes. ( offcourse with ABS ). but evn when the abs is not engaged, braking is amazingly soft, the handling is very crisp. u feel safe at very high speeds. in my opinion, the major fault in corolla is the rear disk brakes without ABS. front disks/ rear drums couldve been the perfect solution ( even without abs )

    corolla has a high center of gravity. the weight distribution is pretty much different than the exi. the corolla locks, the weight shifts forward, and it skids! btw, civic has terrible brakes according to ABS standards ( 1.6L vti ). a japanese vitz has better braking
