    Default Brake pad issue for civic hybrid

    Salam everyone.
    I wanna change my front brake pads for civic hybrid. Today visited honda 3s dealer they r not sure that whether the brake pad of civic will fit on it or not. They will confirm it after opening the tyre. They r asking too much for new brake pad, service n brake oil.

    Need ur suggestion whether to change the brake pads from dealer or buy the brake pads and installed them from my own mechanic aka ustaaad.

    Honda gave me budget of ard 13000 only for front barke pads n service.

    Now need suggestion from expert that from where i can get the original brake pads or the Thailand brake pad in karachi or should i opted honda 3s for brake issue.

    Thanks in advance

    But the hybrid system is same and that system (IMA) uses the generator to slow down the car and brake pads are rarely touched!
    I think in my car as my dad does not use heavy braking can go till 60-65k!
    I got them checked from Honda and they said that it has got some life and no need to replace them!

    Then purchase the brake pads from outside (any shop) and get them installed from the dealer ship!
