My mechanic fix a lot of Myvi lagi best. The stock brake design is actually very good. But the brake master cylinder made after 2010 are not as reliable. It is stupidly ridiculous how quality went down as the model chugs along every revision. I would change that first before looking at disc and pads.

I had a friend who recommended me to change just the master cylinder. He said the braking will definitely improve. Mind sharing your mechanic's contact bro?

before looking into brakes, one important question to ask, apa tayar lu pakai?

Cheap low end tyre, upgrade brake pun wasted. If cannot transfer the traction well, will just keep activating ABS despite new brake set. Activation of ABS doesn't mean that your brake very power, it means that the tyre is locking up due to insufficient traction.

I'm using cc6. For my driving, the dry grip is good. I don't really push the car. For normal driving I feel cc6 is enough, but the brakes are not. So far I've only activated the abs once during hard braking.

1. Change to a bigger brake kit (Odyssey, vios, MR-2 Twin Pot).
2. Get a good brake pad
3. Change brake hose (Super Circuit, IMP)

Guys, I felt that my CX-5 brake is soft and not good enough to stop on time. Any recommendation to upgrade?

Need to change brake caliper, pad and rotor? Macam gonna be very expensive.

Aku x ada racing or what. Just cruise like 110 or 120 in city. When I brake I felt like it'll never be able to stop on time and conlanfirm hentam depan.

Other details:
17" rim
Continental CC6 tyre
Stock brake pad, rotor and caliper
System Error Message

The problem with the myvi i find isnt much to do with brakes, sure you can improve the brakes but i first suggest you adjust the brake controls so you dont have to depress fully. The main problem with the myvi is the assistive system, it simply lacks one. Basically the ABS and other things on the myvi arent great, and it needs more computer controls. For example many foreign recent cars detect when you depress the brake fast enough but not fully and will fully engage the brakes. A lot of times i read that a myvi gets into an accident because it loses control, and losing control can mean 2 things 1) bad driver or 2) bad car. Even though myvi is a common car, for it to lose control on the slow lane because of a motorbike driving the opposite way on the service lane shows that its more likely the car. Also a lot of people drive automatics which usually is controlled by computer, so they lift of the throttle and the computer upshifts. Some automatics when you brake will know and downshift to get the engine to help with braking.

Its more of what the myvi lacks rather.

Trestor advantage is a very affordable high friction pad,may be you can try it.

Normally the pads you can use stock, performance pads cool down faster but also heat up faster. If you brake hard and quick often the performance one will be better.

Stainless steel brake hoses + upgrade Brake pads with greater friction MU co efficient. Slot
N skim ur rotors one shot.

Cheapest option.

2nd option get BBK or brembo brake kit + mounting adapter. And rims that can clear it on a myvi

Question ๐Ÿค” Ada kerrrr ?

Yeah trestor
Not bad for budget, Iโ€™ve used before ๐Ÿ˜‚ when I was still
Up n coming... bendix metal king is better but will eat disc.
Itโ€™s all a compromise. Even with harder Biting pads....
warm up to operating temperature and costs......

Biggest bang for u budget stainless steel brake hoses and
Better friction pads. Slotting will increase wear by 30% and brake 10โ€™- 15% better only .

Doubt the myvi will downshift when you brake or take a cambered corner or downhill like the beemer ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

any solution for MyVi's deep braking system? Free play is too much for MyVi. Read a lot of people having this issue but no conclusion on the solution. Some says change this and that, fix this and that. No real solution.

Thanks for the info. Will consider this. But kinda high price to do for a 13 year old car used for just driving to work and back.
