2011 Ford Mustang GT: Brakes Work Well, Feel a Bit Soft

April 04, 2011


Don't get me wrong, our Mustang stops short as well as anything in its class. But the pedal? It's not exactly what I would call firm.

In most situations there's adequate heft and it's reasonably precise. Get on it with any sort of conviction, though, and it goes from pleasantly firm to all sloppy and hard to read. <

It's been that way with Mustangs for years, so I wasn't exactly surprised. Still, when I see Brembo calipers up front I expect something more. They certainly deliver the power, just not the precision.
