#aftermarket – Genuine Ferodo brake pads for European passenger vehicles are now available to North American service providers and consumers. Fitted as original equipment on eight of Europe’s top 10 best-selling passenger car models, Ferodo brake pads are manufactured by Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation.
With more than 200 part numbers, the new offering of genuine Ferodo Premier pads covers 95% of European passenger vehicles in North America, including the approximately 15.4 million European models registered in the U.S. Each pad set includes the same advanced, OE-quality friction formulation and other features that have made Ferodo the predominant friction brand among leading European manufacturers.
In high-speed testing performed by Federal-Mogul engineers in Europe, using European standards, Ferodo brake pads offered superior stopping power and outperformed the competition in benchmark tests for low noise, braking consistency, durability, and wet and dry braking.
“Many owners of European vehicles strongly prefer genuine, OE-quality replacement brake pads that provide the enhanced stopping and superior control they experienced when their vehicles were brand new. Now those same OE-preferred pads are available directly from Europe through leading North American parts distributors,” said Christopher Battershell, director of brake product management, North America, Federal-Mogul Motorparts.
