Do any of you other Nissan owners have annoyingly grabby brakes? This complaint has been lodged against the G35 a million times, and I've heard one mention of it on the 2000+ Sentra. My Sentra (95 200SX SE-R) can really tire out a leg after repeated exposure to stop-and-go traffic. One explanation is that the pedal itself is mounted too high -- I measured the pedal's surface being over 5 inches above the ground it's perpendicular to.
Can anything be done to make brakes less touchy, or is this one of those
fixed engineering designs we're stuck with for the life of the car? Can we
buy an aftermarket pedal that's angled differently, or better yet, simply
adjust this one downward?
Here's the Sentra article that mentioned it:
