Brakes, when you need them you need them...which to get?
So I try to make my wife's baby mobile as safe as possible, and as a longtime advocate of accident avoidance being the best safely feature I have outfitted her 2009 Jetta Sportwagen TDI with proper summer tires for the warm months and snow tires for cold. I was pondering shocks and springs but the handling is good for a wagon...but the brakes could use some more oomph. Anyone know of a good deal on proper aftermarket brakes for my car? Additionally, what brands have you found to be reliable for your vehicles?
