 Brakes are spongy; partially due to a racing engine, it takes more pressure to apply the brakes for what would be considered a routine stop. the engine has 'automatic cruise control' which distorts normal driving sensors. i drove a similar buick for a day and it didn't require me to brake frequently to avoid exceeding our condo area's speed limit. *ak
