Frontier Brakes

Postby Murray » Tue Mar 01, 2016 6:41 pm

Got a new Frontier V6, the brakes are crap. Mushy, mushy, mushy. Drove another one- the same. They all are mushy. The dealer says it's normal. I think I need aftermarket brakes. What are you boys out there doing for better braking? EBC? Better rotors, pads, hoses? What is working for you? Thanks for the help, Murray.

Welcome to NICO, Murray!

I'm not familiar with the Frontier, but you could do a little investigating.
Pop off the master cylinder cover- what color is the brake fluid? Take a moment to remove the wheels and calipers to check the pad life and to see if the rotors are grooved.
