A year 2000 Subaru Forester. When you activate the emergency brake does it use the front brakes or the rear brakes ?

The PARKING brake is always on the REAR wheels.

Rear brakes are for the emergency brake. If it was the front brakes you wouldn't be able to steer when using the e-brake and the brake cables would snap from flexing when turning a corner.Source(s): Mitsubishi Master Tech

I'm not aware of any commercially produced road vehicle that doesn't apply the parking brake to the rear wheels
