Other cars breaks are not that good too, so why bash rolla all the time.
I am driving a new Xli since January 2005 and have a few skids on sudden breaks, but car was never out of control, it skidded for a few yards in straight line.
If you change stock General tyres, breaking improves a lot. Go for 195/60 or 185/65 type Dunlops or Yokohama.
If you are a careful, traffic rulez abiding driver, then you will have no problem.
