: 2012 self drying brakes .

10-17-11, 09:48 PM
Just saw a commercial for the 2012 srx and it has self drying brake disks.
Anyone know how that works?
Supposedly braking is improved because after going through a puddle the rotors self dry. Better grip on a dry disk, I guess.
Do the rotors heat up after getting wet?

Sounds like something else that might fail.

I've also seen the commercial.
Check out the thread in this Forum, originated by "Marc NY" on 8/27/11, for a good explanation of the brakes.
