I have a couple questions on disc brakes on 2012 SX4 sedan. The first is how many miles before they need changing, and the second is does Suzuki put on good brakes or crappy ones? All answers will be greatly welcome. Thanks guys.
The first answer is - it depends - and the second answer is - better than most available after market products.
How long a set of brake (pads or rotors) will last will vary with the way the car is driven, city usage will typically require more braking than highway usage, and even then it will vary with the driving style.
98 - 1.8 Mitsubishi Pajero iO
98 - 2.0 Suzuki Grand Vitara - SQ420
05 - 2.0 Suzuki Grand Vitara - JB420
15 - 2.4 Kia Sportage
North America seems to get disc brakes front and rear but I believe some of the Euro models have drum brakes on the rear. ------- Update= Rockauto.com shows replacement drums for the rear on some N American versions too! Learn something new every day!!!!!
