Car reviews - Mazda - Bravo - dual cab 4x4 utility
11 Feb 2002
BRAKES are the only real issue we have with this vehicle but if you know that stopping takes a little extra distance then you drive with that in mind. While most 4x4s are now fitted with disc brakes on the front and rear, the Bravo has what most light commercials have and that is discs on the front and drums on the rear. The dual-circuit hydraulic vacuum servo assisted brakes use a tandem master cylinder to control the front ventilated discs and the rear drums, with the added help of a load sensing proportioning valve at the rear. The load sensor helps to distribute the braking force to the appropriate wheel and avoid brake lock-up.
