I have been driving a Honda Accord 2005 for two months now and from the very beginning it felt that the brakes are not smooth. According to the seller the brake pads were new.
The issue is when I start pressing brake slowly, it felt like brakes are not engaging properly and after a moment it seems to apply full braking force all at once (which is very jarring for the car's occupants!)
I have tried to adjust how I apply the brakes myself a lot, but haven't found a way that results in smooth braking.
I've been driving for ~ 3 years and haven't experienced this in any other car so this leads me to think there is a problem with the brakes on this particular car.
So my question is whether this sounds like "normal" behavior for this model of car or whether it indicates a problem with the brakes? If it's a fault what could that fault be?
