2013 Scion FR-S Long Term Road Test

2013 Scion FR-S: Needs New Brake Pads

March 6, 2013

2013 Scion FR-S

This is not entirely unexpected. The brake pads in our long-term 2013 Scion FR-S are done. There's still meat left on them, but like any meat that's been overcooked, they feel like plywood now.

Around town, there's less bite to the brakes than there used to be prior to running the FR-S at Laguna Seca a while back. Like I said, this result is not unexpected. Nuke the brakes of any car at a track day and they'll suffer the consequences.
