but the mass of the Ex make it hard to stop... "The brakes are huge four wheel ventilated discs at each corner with standard antilock. Pedal feel was strong and linear. Stopping this much mass is going to take some distance, but the brakes were fade free and powerful. Figure stopping distances in 60-0 panic stops to be 20 percent greater than your average family sedan."
For the Ex 60 to 0 braking distance is 167'. Our car does it in less than 120'
