    Hello,

    I've got some issue with my brakes !!

    - sometime get a feeling of pedal is being pushed back. It is observed at a normal speed, most of the time between 1-3 gears. Don't know how to explain :writing: !! sense of hardening / roughness in pedals.
    - even feeling pedal is bit harder now.

    These brake pads have run around 7000 Kms, are in good condition. Disc seems to be fine when checked at brake pads replacement time.

    Not sure any member gone through issue like this, really appreciate any thoughts/suggestions

    Thanks,
    Sunil

    Can you post current ODO reading, when were the services done on vehicle and if the car is in EW (extended warranty). Have you shown already to FASC; what do they say in that case?

    Current ODO - 42K (its 2012 model)
    3rd service was at 30K ODO in Jul-2014 at KHT whitefield.

    yes I'll be visiting FASC (Vector Motors, Mysore Road) this weekend, before going there just wanted to collect enough info on this issue.

    Do you feel any vibrations in the steering wheel when you apply brakes?
