Re: Team-Fiat group up to request fiat for brake pad design Here goes my experience/ story on the exact same point: I got 2nd service done at around 16,500 kms. During the discussions Service advisor said that I might have to come again at around 19-20,000 kms for Brake Pad change. I asked why so early? I would not like to visit TASC so immediately :mrgreen: He said that, in that case get it done around 22 K kms, many guys have done it at around 15K kms. I said ok and went off. I never felt any loss of bite in the brakes after that for the next 15,000 kms !!! I went for 3rd service at 30,000 kms & left the car at the same TASC. Service Advisor called me in the afternoon that Brake Pads need to be changed, it was hectic so I did not argue much. Still I asked why. He said your car is driven well compared to others/ normal & the wear is even. May be it can go on for sometime. But its better to do it now. I left it at that & got it done. Moral of the story - This Brake Pad change business seems like a hype created by Service stations. First it was 19K-20 K kms. then it was 22K kms. Then 30K kms & still it could have gone on. Better to check with some independent mechanic if in doubt about advise of early replacement by TASC. PS: And yes. After the 2nd service, like Amit (Italia_Linea) I also felt that its too early remembering that a few guys on various forums got it changed quite early. I also posted on forums the question on why so early. But thereafter Brake Pads went on well till 30,000 kms & I'm sure it could have been alright till 35K-40K kms as Brakes did not lose any bite whatsoever.
