i have seen that corolla has a very Hard suspension and the shockabsorbers to and fro motion is not naked to eye...when you press the brakes the dampers infact transfers the load and momentum of the vehicle to the Tires and they grip the road.....what happens if the shocks eat all the load ....the tires dont find grip and start skiding on road....please keep in mind that the new corolla is not as heavy as its looks depict it to be...its a damn light car
It is not a myth that corollas have a brake issue its a Fact.
secondally you have to believe me that some toyota models dont have the same problem e.g SE SALOON has more body weight and its braking is better than a Xli,Gli.
try putting tires with a very soft tread such as Michelin, Sumitomo, Dunlop Fm901 series etc and see for urself how improved the braking becomes.
people say that Mehran performs better and its road grip increases if more people are put in....why is that...coz the load inturn increases the momentum and the tires have a lot of pressure on em when Brakin and they stick to the ground....
i thnk thats the issue....replace the corolla shocks with softer ones and see the difference.
