I’ve been trying to figure this out. Despite having new front brake pads and rotors, it seems the time it takes for my car to stop has not decreased.

When pressing the brake, it seems that it has to be nearly all the way down to work. Otherwise the brakes would be subtly applied and my speed barely decreases. Most other cars that I’ve driven, the brakes work a lot quicker. Is this normal? The only other car that did this, that I drove, is my dads ‘05 Corolla.

Update: it seems the most likely culprit is that the brake line hasn't been bled since I bought the car 8+ mo the ago.
