Default Soft brakes

Are the Subaru brakes softer than other cars? I feel like I have to push the pedal down pretty far before they start to work. The pads look fine. The Subaru dealer I bought the car from sucks and I dont trust what the tech says. The price was right and thats about it.

The standard Subaru brakes are very soft. A good mod is to replace the OEM brake lines with stainless lines. Made all the difference in the world.

Try bleeding the brakes first. Might help a little.

Our OB pulls like a mofo to one side when braking hard on the freeway. The Toyota T100 has warped front rotors, and it does a neat little 'wanna be ABS' partial lockup in the front when braking hard.

My Legacy has bad brakes in general. Pulls really hard to one side during some braking, but not all the time. I use the engine more than the actual brakes though.
