loosing brake....

Hello to all,

I have a simple question, last week I left for vacancy in Switzerland to a friend, he lives as height as 1200 meters in mountain, when I comes down in plain, brakes warm hardly, result my brakes are almost out of order.

In this style of driving,there a kind of brake in rising on the vehicle or then a position on the automatic trans to be put instead of D?

On Rockauto parts i see brake pad and disk brake in ceramic it's good for me or not ?

Driving in the mountains of Switzerland......cool.

I'm no expert, but sounds like you got some brake fade happening due to excessive heat build up.

If you're doing this on a regular basis, maybe you need a brake upgrade that will keep the brakes cooler.....slotted or drilled rotors maybe, with a new set of pads I'm guessing.

Performance kit -

Heavy duty with towing -

these type of brakes packages won't heat up like standard brakes because the heat and gasses is vented as well as ceramic pads resist heat.
With reduced heat you will be less likely to experience brake fade.
