Your exactly right, if you drive a cruze with 4 wheel disc brakes its a night an day difference on the pedal feel. Unfortunately for me I have a 1LT with drums and HATE the pedal feel, makes the car feel like every GM car from the 1980's I drove.The main reason is that I find when I apply the brakes, I feel like Fred Flintstone lol... foot through the floor style.. they just seem so soft compared to all disc brakes.
In the models that have the Disc/Drum combo think of it as GM cutting corners and being cheap. While other makers do the same thing it is right up there with roll up manual windows as far as I'm concerned. However from a safety point of view there is little if no compromise when it comes to stopping power. It is though more expensive doing routine maintenance on drum brakes. This was one of the first things that bothered me about the 1LT.it does seem like far too much work for me tho so i'll just have to get used to them I guess!
Get the rear brakes adjusted. We know the drums on the 2011 and 2012s weren't adjusted properly. There shouldn't be that much play in the brake pedal, even with rear drums.Thanks everyone.. the main reason is that I find when I apply the brakes, I feel like Fred Flintstone lol... foot through the floor style.. they just seem so soft compared to all disc brakes. I don't intend on taking this to the track but where I drive, you need to stop on a dime thanks to the ppl around you that got their license from a crackerjack box! LOL
