Bendix has been at the forefront of the brake industry, having supplied the first four-wheel disc brakes for a U.S. production car in 1962 and introducing Anti-Lock Brakes in 1971.
Drivers should look for quality brake products from trusted brands to ensure they get the necessary safety, performance and durability requirements their vehicles need. Premium brake products provide better performance, longer wear and meet or exceed original equipment standards.
When taking your vehicle in for brake repair, communicate your preferences to the technician and be sure to explain the type of driving you do most - highway or in-city, for instance. Bendix CT-3 brake pads, for example, offer superior stopping power, which is necessary for bumper-to-bumper traffic. These brakes also are suitable for vehicles that carry light loads or have custom wheels.
Bendix TitaniuMetallic II brake pads, on the other hand, are ideal for cars that carry heavy loads, while Bendix Fleet MetLok brakes are best for cars that require severe-duty braking, such as police cars, ambulances, taxis and tow trucks.
