Facing replacement of rotors and pads in my 2016 Forester, I consider non-OEM parts. Thus, I was trying to figure out what type are the OEM pads (i.e., semi-metallic, ceramic). I could not find this information online.
I went on and had the service done in a local shop. While paying, I asked the mechanic, and he looked it up on his computer. Apparently, the (at least the Limited Edition) Foresters come installed with ceramic pads.
