    Default Suzuki Alto VXR brake issue

    I have a Suzuki Alto VXR 2007 model.

    In the last 5 years, at least four times the brakes on this car have failed. I take it to the Suzuki dealer and he fixes the issue for the issue to come back again.

    Last time when the brake failed, I was told the booster has the problem and it is not pumping the brake fluid to the brakes. So it was replaced. The brakes are still very light and sometime pedal need to be pressed 3/4 times quickly to apply brakes.

    Please advise what should I do? If I change the whole brake booster assembly with a brand new one, will it help?

    there are absolutely no modifications in the car. Its all standard. The wheels are standard steel wheels with plastic rims.

    The problem is no one gives a satisfactory response. The Suzuki dealer must know what the issue is. We have been taking this car to Suzuki dealership. They still cant fix the issue even after several brake failures.

    May be its time for u to take matters in ur own hands
    Get both disks tooled and use nippon or asuki geniine brake pads
    then u will feel the result total cost around 2k
    dealersip guys are just ripping ppl off with their tactics may be they do nothing and say sir jogya nikalo 5krupees
