My Qualis has run 75K + Kms and during recent service, dealer told me that Brake shoes / Pads need replacement since the thickness is 2mm. When I enquired the cost, he said, it would be around 8K approximately
Hence, requesting the experts here to clarify the below doubts
1. Is 2 mm Thickness an indication to replace the brakes ?
2. If yes, Which are the better brands for replacement, I googled and found Bosch, TVS and Rane are popular brands. Which is the better one. Please provide Positives and negatives of these brands
Also, I have a feeling that at Full Load (Nine people in the car), the car does not move freely. (Feels like brakes are holding the car) I dont see this effect during NO Load( 1 person driving the car). Recently, with 9 people in the car, i was trying to uphill the car and i heard a thud noise at the back. I immediately, emptied the car and took the car back. Is there anything that has got damaged ? Post this, i also started noticing that the wheels of the car (Not tyres) getting Hotter
Is there anything serious in the car? Please suggest your solutions for these issues
