This doesn't sound normal to me. My brakes don't "grab" or feel uneven (other than slight differences that can be expected when switching between regen and friction). I don't remember any different behaviour when the car was new either.kk6yb said:I can tell when the friction brakes kick in but that's not the problem I've seen.
My friction brakes grab and release 2-3 times while slowing gently from 6 mph down to a stop. So far I've ignore it on the assumption that my brake pads are not broken in yet since I only have 1200 miles on it so far.
That picture explains a lot considering that it would take some significant braking force to remove that rust with the friction brakes. You could generate friction braking by finding a nice place clear of people and cars and doing some quick acceleration followed by some very heavy braking.Hobbit said:http://techno-fandom.org/~hobbit/cars/brakerust.jpg
