Genuine Subaru Brakes and Brake Accessories

You may think that brakes--their pads, rotors, etc.--are just brakes. After all, they all perform the same general function: you press your brake pedal, pressurized brake fluid travels to the brake caliper and pushes on the brake pad, and the friction created by the pads helps bring the turning of the wheels to a complete stop.

It's not magic, but sometimes it feels like it. That's because Subaru brake parts are designed specifically to work with the exact system in your car or SUV. Using only genuine replacement brake parts--not generic aftermarket equipment--is the best way to continue getting that legendary performance and security.
