Q, Is there any other rodeo owners out there that have experianced the problem of lack of "feeling" in the brake pedal. I have adjusted the rears and replaced fluid, then rebled the complete system. I have also had the vacuume pump checked out OK, 25 bar of vacuum. Now looking at brake booster.
Any comments concerning this problem would be greatly appriciated.

Cheers Mik

My Rodeo brakes would put you thru the windscreen without lookin at the pedal! Was awesome!

my 96 model dual cab has weak brakes, not much fun when loaded up and towing a motorbike trailer.

My Rodeo did 300,000 towing 2 bikes on the back (250/350, 250/250, or 350/750), usually 6 spare wheels and tires, fairings, jerrys, riding gear etc, and probably a dozen interstate trips had a trailer on the back of there with another 2 bikes, and riding gear, wheels etc etc.

Never had a problem, went like the powers of bleep , and stopped faster than a womans sex drive once she gets the weddin ring.

Mine was a 1990 Petrol 2.6 manual.. Gee that thing took a floggin, and is now owned by a copper in Cronulla!

But as others said, drive car accordingly..

I had a '96 single cab pickup auto and found the brakes to be excellent.

The 2.6 petrol had plenty of go and it had the stop to match. I only got rid of it because of the fuel bills.

Mik,
I had a 1991 Petrol Rodeo, and like Truckster's, they were excellent. If anything, a little too touchy. I now own a 2002 TD Rodeo and they are not as good as the previous ones, but still pull it up with no problems and it wieghs a fair bit more as well.

Sorry I can't be of any other help!
