Default Brake pads (Los Angeles)

Anyone know where I may be able to get brake pads in or around LA and how much they run?

Odd, i don't think anyone had to replace brake pads on a Karma due regen. I'm at 57,000 and still like new -- pads and rotors. is the issue "squealing", especially in reverse?

That’s exactly it. I recently got my Fisker (2 weeks ago) and just noticed squealing at low speeds etc. Are brakes not a common issue?

Dont replace them there is a service bulletin to remove the pads (front and rear) clean the edges where they fit in the calipers. Apply molykote paste to the pad edges and the back surface where they contact the pistons.
You can get the paste from a mercedes dealer or use the permatex brand. Noise will be gone for sure.

Thank you so much for the info my man! Should I just go into any Mercedes dealership and ask for it?

Yes. I believe they used it on the older ML. You can get it on amazon or ebay. Search Mercedes molykote. Or like I said the permatex high heat brake lube will work its in a green bottle.
