I've noticed it but my last car, an Accura, was worse. Nothing I can't handle but I will check tire pressure.
I had it happen once to me with my tires at 35 psi. But I was going too fast for what my intentions were anyway, then I tried to stop quickly on a road made from potholes on top of potholes. I ended up turning into the parking lot way faster than usual. I got a little wheel squeal, but everything worked out for me.
This is not normal, I don't care what tire pressure you run. The truck just keeps rolling and takes too long to stop. Every vehicle I have ever driven never had manners such as this, someone eventually is going to run into the vehicle in front of them (I almost did) or cross into an intersection.Happened to me few days ago, almost went into an intersection
Would like to see Toyota address this one. Thanks for the compliment. I love my ZX-14! :ninja:I had a similar issue with my '95 Blazer (way back when). ABS system was horrible and I complained about it all the time. Eventually, I traded it in for a Grand Cherokee. 2 weeks latter I got a re-call notice from Chevy regarding "faulty ABS" system. Figures. Wonder if that may happen some day.
By the way, nice bike. I've got a 14 also. You've got good taste in vehicles! :rocker:
When this happens to you, try stepping harder
on the brake... In my case, when I do get the
'slide'(LOLOL) I just step harder (if stopping is
critical) and it get's the message, just make
sure your seatbelt is on before hand...
IF the road is slippery then I'll expect the worse out of the brakes since all four wheels will be on the same surface. However, if one wheel is on a slippery surface and the rest are on a dry or grippy surface and the vehicle keeps going longer than it should, then something is obviously wrong.Snowing tonight JUST missed a three car accident that unfolded right in front of me. Brakes were USELESS. Swerved to avoid and luckily the guy on my left reacted quickly as I'd hoped and went left onto the grass.:flame:
Agreed, to a certain degree. However without the ABS system I would be able to feather the brake pedal and modulate the force applied to the wheels. WITH the ABS, once it starts its "dance" it doesn't let up until you remove your foot COMPLETELY from the pedal. THAT is just plain dangerous. I think it is the poorly conceived COMBINATION of ABS and BRAKE ASSIST that causes this problem.IF the road is slippery then I'll expect the worse out of the brakes since all four wheels will be on the same surface.
