I always thought that the brakes were touchy on my ‘13 TCH but man, this ‘18 TCH is really touchy!

I get it that when the rotors have some flash rust on them, but even on a good day you have to be easy on the pedal. Anyone else experience this? On a good note, my ‘13 now has 107k on the original brakes.

I find them very touchy too. The transition is too abrupt. Also, creeping into my garage is a neck snapping experience.

This is my first hybrid.

I’ve driven an eGolf and MINI Cooper SE (both EVs) and found the braking smoother.

I’m at 25k now and I don’t see them getting any smoother. They’re outright grabby if your just rolling into the garage.

My 2018 TCH has over 110k miles and its been grabby and touchy since the day we bought it. THis only happens at low speed maneuvering

The brakes are grabby, especially at low speeds. Parking is a head jerking affair which isn’t elegant for such a nice car.

I have experienced no problems with manual braking on my 2018 TCH XLE. Automatic braking while using enhanced cruise control can be a bit jerky, but just using the brake pedal it works normally with no grabbing.

I was worried about this before my purchase as I saw the car salesman reversing one and it looked terribly jerky. However, now that I have one, the only time I really notice this is creeping into my garage anticipating hitting the rubber bump with the tire that lets me know I'm in right spot for closing the garage door, etc. I don't notice it in parking lots or really even in stop/go traffic, but I'm sure part of that is just that I got used to it.
