    Default City 2012 brake pads

    Its only driven 15k but brake pads completely degraded to the point where i could feel the vibration and squeaking voice when braking. What could be the reason behind this early degradation of the brake pads. The mechanic told me it was due to excessive drifting but handbrake was fine which is used for drifting(its my brothers stupid shauk)..Why front wheel brake pads degraded so early? What are the possible reasons?

    Aggressive driving. Too much hard braking causes brake pads to be degraded.
    This shouldn't be surprising for you if your car is being used for drifting. Be ready to change clutches after 50k kms.
    Happy Drifting.

    Brands other than oem make braking worse and screws up brake rotos. It's better to spend more than spending on cheaper stuff.
