Repco/RPR makes some of the best dustless pads in the world. Been using them on European cars for years with excellent results. Don't know if they produce pads for Hondas.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by Ken W:
About that brake dust. My front wheels were noticeably darker (covered with dust) after 50 miles of ownership. I know Raybestos has developed a "dust free" pad for heavy GM cars and trucks. Anybody know if they are available for the Ody?
I let our '02 which has 3,300 miles on it sit for over a week in the garage during a recent spell of bad weather (snow, ice, cold) to avoid the salt on the road. The first time I took it out I noticed a bit of a grinding. It went away after a few blocks. I attributed the noise to the thin layer of rust that seems to appear when I let any disc brakes sit that long. It hasn't returned since I started driving the Ody again (better weather).<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by roll:
I have approximately 3500 miles on my 2002. At about 2000 miles I started to get a scrubbing noise from the back discs the first couple of times they are applied after the van has sat for a few days. The dealer says it is natural. Has anyone else had this problem?</font>
