Just curious to know how much is life of 2012 Punto Brake pad. Please cast your vote.
Its total depends on driving style and conditions.. For me first pads lasted 24,500 Kms and Second one 27000 kms. We have already other threads on which we discussed about brake pads widely. Please do check those threads.
all depends upon driving style,city drive,highway drive.
I will be changing the break pads for the first time of my ride by couple of weeks which has already crossed 34k KMs.
It is based on the driving style along with the terrain you are driving. More dusty terrain, you will encounter the dust logs into the brake pad and the brake pad wears too soon. I already crossed 13K and don't have any issue in the brake pads. You can apply the brake pad cleaning fluid (that can be applied without removing the tire; even if you tell the SC guys that your brake pads makes noise, they will do the same) if you are driving in dusty terrain more frequently.
Mine is not exactly 2012 Punto, but 2008 Fiat Linea (regd Jan 2009). I have done about 55,000 km and replaced the first brake pad at 22,000 km or so (I used to be a bit more aggressive driver initially and hence more wear and tear).
Depends on the usage most of the early worn outs of brakes accounts to city traffic..
Changed break pads @ 36,000 kms.
OT. Any idea how much the brembos disc rotors and brake pads cost. If its cost effective I would be glad to upgrade the already excellent braking power.
Changed brake pads 5th time in last 45000 Kms...
