I don't know if it's me, but it seems my E-brake needs to be pulled almost all the way to really engage. Is it the tension on the brake line or is it just like that. I park my car in front of my garage which is on a very slight slope. Even on the slope when I let off the brake with my foot I get a slight roll back. Even when I get out of the car it makes a rubbing noise which is the car wanting to roll back but is tensioned by the brakes.In most cars I've driven, you only have to pull the e-brake up slighty and the more you engage it would be for more of a slope your car would be parked on. It just seems weird that the e-brake on my TC has to be almost all the way up to keep the car still. Am I tripping and that is how the ebrake just is??

Its purely mechanical and it needs some pressure applied. My problem is that when lowering it, it doesn't always go down all the way so I have to push the button again and let it the rest of the way down. I think its because my old car had less 'stuff' around the ebrake so 'all the way down' felt different.

I notice the same thing and think it's odd too.
I'm going in for my 1000mi oil dump and having them look at a few things tomorrow. That's one of the things I'm having them look at.

It's totally adjustable, but mine doesn't feel any different than my Supras or any of the other Toyotas I have owned.
