Mercedes-Benz points to advantages of genuine brake kits

Mercedes-Benz has extended its range of commercial vehicle brake kits, with savings of up to 43 per cent on certain kits.

As well as kits for the Actros, Axor, Atego, Vario and Sprinter 901-904 model series, brake kits are also available for the current 3.5 tonne Sprinter 906 model series.

Mercedes-Benz says that on the open market, CV spare parts including brake pads and discs can be bought in varying qualities, but when you buy genuine Mercedes-Benz parts there is no compromise on quality and durability.

The company advises that not all competing products meet the standards set by Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes-Benz genuine brakes are designed and perfectly calibrated to fit the vehicle and can always be relied up when braking, the company says.

Additionally Mercedes-Benz genuine brake pads and discs offer:

·         Long service and low wear
·         Excellent braking performance
·         Optimal frictional combination
·         High-grade materials
·         Good heat dissipation

With genuine discs and brake pads from Mercedes-Benz, drivers will bring their vehicle to a stop more quickly, the company says. The genuine articles are also more cost effective, according to Mercedes-Benz.
