Re: Peted, K&Ned, 22K Kilometers, 4 Months not like that saar, peteing a car does not mean that it will eat away its brakes at a faster rate. there are two factors working. one is the abs and one is the weight of the car. i'll be getting my brake pads cleaned tomorrow or so and that will be the time to decide whether they'll actually need replacement at 45k or not. if they do, i'll opt for the tarox pads i suppose. saw a horrible vento accident yesterday. guess its the first totalled vento in india. unfortunately it was a td car and the vw surat showroom guys were driving it. both of them died on the spot. details on tbhp drive safe.
