I had ceramic pads installed on my 05 CTS

they are weak in stopping power but no dust

i think they are too slow to grab and stop the car

do any of you have ceramic issues

I have ceramic pads. For me they stop well, but squeak a little. Not really an issue to me.

Once they wear in they should be better and grab better. The brake dust will also come back although not as bad as the original pads. If you do a search, there is a proceedure to SEAT the pads, it's something like getting the car up to 60 and do a quick stop, do that 3 times. I never did it, my ceramics wore in but took a few weeks.

I think the oem pads are excellent. I have gone months without washing my car and there is no buildup of brake dust. And the stopping power is very good for a sedan.
