newb questions

i just purchased my taco on tues. brand new DC TRD Sport. this is my 1st truck, 1st tacoma and ive owned 3 4runners in the past.

i was wondering if the brake peddle is supposed to feel so soft? i dont remember my 2005 v6 4runner or even my father 2006 v8 4runner feelin this way.

not sure if its just in my head because my previous car was a honda s2000.

thanks for all the help

I hate the brake feel

Theese 09 or maybe 2nd gen brakes suck.... The feedback is bullshit, Don't get me wrong I like the truck but the brakes seem to be an afterthought.

Mine is the same. When I traded in my 02 and bought my 06 it was hard to get use to but now it's normal to me.

Mine is the same. It stiffened up a bit after the first couple hundred clicks, but they're still quite soft.
