Brake Pads & Rotors

Brakes are too important to safety to risk using generic “aftermarket” replacement parts. The high quality and precision of Genuine Subaru Brake Parts helps ensure that your vehicle keeps operating as safely and reliably as it did when it was new.

Since Genuine Subaru Brake Parts are engineered to meet your vehicle’s exact factory specifications, they are matched to the brakes that were installed on your car when it was brand new. Aftermarket brake parts are often manufactured with generic specifications to cater to a global market and variance in vehicle models.

Genuine Subaru Brake Parts are manufactured from high quality materials, using precision manufacturing methods. Aftermarket brake part quality can be inferior – and the lower price reflects it. Genuine Brake Pads & Brake Rotors are a perfect match to your vehicle.

The materials used in both Genuine Brake Pads and Rotors help eliminate;

  • Brake shudder 
  • Noise 
  • Poor heat dissipation 
  • Unreliable performance

When mixed with aftermarket or non-genuine, the above cannot be assured including the stopping performance and safety can be compromised.

How long should your brakes last?

That depends on several factors that contribute to braking system wear and tear. 

These include:

  • Driving habits and operating conditions 
  • Type of vehicle and type of brake lining materials 
  • Multiple system components – pads or rotors can wear at different rates.

As part of the vehicles service maintenance schedule, your braking system is checked and if a replacement set of brake pads or rotors are required, your Subaru service technician will recommend immediate replacement or a time/kms before they may require replacement. 

What are the warning signs that my braking system requires a service?

  • Your vehicle pulls to one side during braking 
  • Brake pedal pulsates when you apply the brakes 
  • Brake pedal feels “mushy.” 
  • The master cylinder is repeatedly low on brake fluid

If you’re noticing any of these warning signs, it’s time to have your Subaru dealer’s service technician inspect and diagnose your braking system.
