Hi All, Since the day i bought my linea i have kept her spanking and clean. during cleaning i have always observed lots of brake dust all over the front alloys. this made me doubt that there is lot of wear on brake pads and they wont last more. i started investigating the average life of the brake pads. i also inquired at service stations. i was shocked to hear from owners and over the various forums that the life of brake pads is around 15000 kms :shocked and i am more shocked since team-fiatians are just okay about it. this is not acceptable at all keeping in mind the service intervals of 15k kms. the brake pads are critical components related to safety of the car and such a terrible life is not acceptable. on an average the minimum that brake pads last is atleast 35000-40000 kms. i think as a part of respectable forum we should write to Fiat india to change the brake pad design and also change the material on them. they should recall all cars and fit them with better pads.
