Re: Replacement of Front Pads @ 80,000 km
I looked up Akebono site... as the OEM pads are Akebonos.
In one of their brochures-- they show a slit on the pads-- and says "Slotted for NVH Control" (where applicable).
I then looked for NVH---- one of the selling points for these pads------ Best control of Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH)
