Dealer advised at last scheduled maintenance that the front brake pads were at their minimum acceptable thickness and recommended brake service. Also advised there were OEM parts and "Value" parts, also made by Nissan but less expensive with pads and rotors not as thick. As we are keeping the car for some time we opted for OEM parts.
