Sluggish braking on 2011 C300 4matic

Pros

  • Not As Expensive As Oem

Cons

  • Sluggish Breaking

Best Uses

    Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

    Installed these on the 2011 C300 4Matic, replacing the original OEM brakes when they had worn out. The breaking is sluggish, spongy and slow, and not like it was with the OEM. The price is significantly cheaper than the OEM parts, so I got what I paid for. Not happy with the breaking power when I was accustomed to high quality parts of OEM (but wasn't accustomed to the price tag). Next time I will shell out the extra cash to get OEM. I advise others to do the same, unless you like the Honda feel on a Benz.

    Installation was easy enough as any other brake job. Just obtain your torque specs!

      Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

      Installed on Mercedes Benz 2012 C250 sport sedan.
      Very little brake dust. I hated OEM brakes because of that. GREAT for the price however the OEMs braked faster than these. If you're a sporty driver yu may want something better. If you're a casual daily driver these work fine.

      This part number does not fit the 2011 Mercedes Benz E550, 4matic. It says its an exact fit but it does not have the pin holes instead use Part number PNAD1420. Its is a perfect match.
