    Has anyone had a problem with soft brakes. I have 10,000 miles on my 09
    I do not like they way it brakes it just is not strong enough. I took it to Toyota and they say they are fine. A friend drove it and over shot a stop sign. His comment was that there was not much stopping power. I have not been please since I bought this truck with the brakes.
    Anyone else have this problem:mad:

    Yes brakes are not the best on the 5-luggers, the caliper is a single piston caliper, when the time comes I will replace the disk pads with ceramic pads. If I had the $ I would go with a big brake upgrade kit, it ranges from $700-$2500 consists of bigger disc and better caliper.
