Earlier this year I rented a [email protected]
that was equipped with surge brakes. I drove on some steep hills and thought that they were doing fine for normal driving up to around 65 mph.
I was looking for a specific turn off onto a gravel parking lot where I could easily stop and turn around. The turn snuck-up on me and I braked kind of hard to slow down enough to safely make the turn. THEN I felt the surge brakes engage. It turned out that none of the regular driving I had done was enough to engage the surge brakes until this minor "emergency" braking.
Are surge brakes supposed to engage under normal conditions, or are do they only engage for emergency conditions?
