Re: The Brute-Fort: My 2016 Toyota Fortuner 4x4 M/T, Now upgraded with BF Goodrich T/A KO2
Service Update: 35,000 km (August 2019)
Though this was a minor service (5k interval one) but had planned to change the brake pads this time around as they needed a change (front set).
Total Bill was INR 9226/- (Incl. Taxes)
However next day i wasn't satisfied with the performance as the new brake pads were giving too much vibrations (felt in steering during braking)
This persisted after two long trips too (hence was not the case of breaking in the pads). So obviously the front discs needed skimming.
Hence on 20th August resent the car to Millenium Toyota for this work & it took almost half a day to get the skimming done.
Once both the surfaces (slight scrubbing of pads with sand paper & discs cutting/skimming) were smooth it was indeed a job well done
Total cost of skimming & labour was aprox INR 2200/- (Incl. Taxes)
Now the brakes feel fantastic & no vibrations observed till date
