KickBacks It's not that hard of a process although it may seem like a lot more is required. Doesn't take long at all and quite easy to feel it out. But to each their own in that regards as I know safety is the primary focus and you gotta do what you gotta do.

ontherun well it depends on a number of things, the type of pad/rotors and what the tech is feeling while on the road test. I rather them rack up a few more miles just to have 100% confidence that me as the consumer is getting a good product. Rather limit my visits to the dealer.

KickBacks All you'll really need is about 3 kilometers IF that... how much of a distance would you want them to be bedded in for?

Kicker I believe the mileage on new cars are generally around the single or double digits, not really enough to break anything in unless you took the test model.

KickBacks If your breaks aren't broken in properly, you'll definitely feel it. If the dealers are making those kind of mistakes though, you should find a new dealer. That's a pretty sizable safety concern.

depends on how well broken in they are, humans make mistakes and sometimes miss certain things and if you're able to pick up on that as an owner, more power to you. not too many people even know there's an issue or something not right till something obvious happens (something breaks, light goes on, etc.)

Kicker With how jerky my braking is during the initial first drive, that should probably be enough to help them bed in and then I smooth out over time.

KickBacks Typically when I talk to a few of my buddies that work in dealerships, they say they do it to all brake pads, even OE replacement (which they typically deal with) whenever they install new ones or they're doing a PDI on a brand new vehicle.

Kicker Does that apply to performance brake pads or all pads? AutoAnything has a similar method but at different speeds.

Quote:
Accelerate to 35 mph and apply moderate brake pressure to reduce your speed to 5-10 MPH

Repeat this process 3-4 times, the goal is to warm up your brake pads

Now turn up the heat even more by increasing your speed to 45 mph and braking down to 10 mph

Repeat this process 3-4 times

Pro Tip: Itís important to avoid coming to a complete stop during this stage as itís possible to melt brake pads against hot rotors.
