Adaptive Cruise Control and Brake Pads

Watch this Tech Minute to help with your next repair on adaptive cruise control vehicles.

In this video, Andrew Markel discusses the importance of using high-quality brake pads for vehicles with adaptive cruise control. The corrections could take longer to bring the vehicle under control if the brake pads don’t produce enough friction. If the new friction material is too aggressive, it could cause abrupt corrections or even an over correction. If a customer complains of these conditions, take a look at the brake pads and ask if they have recently been replaced.
