2017 spark lt brakes....

3 posts in this topic

On a 17 spark lt cvt are there any brands of brake pads or rotors that will stop the car better than factory/oem? Is the reason the factory brake parts don't stop well because they are so small? Thanks.

Your hypothesis is correct. Size matters when it comes to brake pads.

Expensive sporty cars like the Corvette has massive sized pads in relation

to curb weight of car.

 

However why change original brake pads before they wear out?

I would keep using them until showing signs of obvious wear. Just give yourself enough distance to stop the car.

I also feel like the brakes are weak. I think its a combination of the cvt and the brakes.  If you put in neutral and brake, it feels like regular.  When cvt is engaged, it feels like its being dragged.  Once i wear them out i will put something better. If they exist.
