break = to damage or destroy
brake = to stop

My '14 is very smooth and responsive on braking, and I feel very confident that, when I need them, they will stop me and my 4000 pound beast right now! I bedded my brake pads shortly after delivery too. The rear pads had all sort of contact inconsistencies that bedding fixes.
