Brake Disc Pads problem is a common vehicle problem that happens to most car brands and models. The following is a sample list of Brake Disc Pads problems reported in most popular vehicles.
The car is a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1GCEK19089_. Used the vehicle for vacation in 2011 as it was just 1 year old. Very little brake ped left going down hill. Going down hill and step on the brake and there was a bad vibration and growling noise from the brakes. I had it checked and the dealer ground the brake rotors. This never solved the problem, so they replaced the rotors. This solved the problem for the warped rotors for a while. Now the problem started again with 23000 miles and only growls and vibrates when going down hill where you have to step down a little harder. Had it checked out again and they say the rotors are warped again. I replaced the rotors and put new brake pads on and the problem is still there. I do not drive the vehicle hard and only about 4000 miles per year. Whats causing the brake rotors to keep warping. It was Wednesday, July 6, 2011 when this brake disc pads issue occurred.

The vehicle involved is a 2011 Chevrolet Traverse. The VIN of this Traverse is 1GNKVGED4B_. Lost both pads and rotors on the rear of vehicle, premature wear, not normal. Move forward to present may 9 2014. 37,000 miles and the front brakes, poads and rotors, need replacing and the rear pads already need new pads. The brakes have to be malfunctioning in some way. Called gm for the first incident and received some re-imbursement. I have not had repairs done on second incident but have made an appointment to secure repairs. It seems that what controls braking, example the proportionate valve, has failed in these instances. The results of the problem are the brakes need to be replaced evry 18,000 miles and that is not normal. My brakes, especially the rear last between 50 and 60 thousand miles and all other cars owned and the front normally last at least 40 thousand mile. Gm has made mistakes in building the brake system with inferior parts. The failure date was Sep. 27, 2012.

The vehicle was a 2011 Chrysler town and country. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is 2A4RR8DG7B_. At 23,430 miles, brake rotors (all 4) excessively out of round. Vehicle shuddered upon braking, especially at highway speeds. All 4 rotors were resurfaced at Chrysler dealer. Again, at 28,630 miles, same vehicle, brake pads down to 15% and had to replace all 4 brake pads and machine all 4 rotors again at same Chrysler dealer. Vehicle shuddered slightly upon braking once again, especially at highway speeds. These incidences are only 4,200 miles and 4 months apart, and $1,000 out of my pocket and not covered by warranty, as are said to be "normal wear and tear. " really? hmmm. . . It was Monday, Dec. 23, 2013 when this brake disc pads issue occurred.

The vehicle is a 2010 Chrysler town and country. The vehicle had a crash. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 2A4RR5DX1A_. I have 2 problems with this vehicle that Chrysler refuses to respond to with appropriate answers. The 1st one is the front brakes. This has been an issue since the purchase of the vehicle. 4-2010 the rotors always create hot spots then causes the brakes to fail. . There is never any wear on the brake pads just the rotors. There was a letter sent out a couple years ago that they would repair the brakes with either a $50. 00 to $100. 00 deductible. Now , they will not honor that letter. Obviously, there was a problem then for the letter to be sent out, why change it now. I still have the same van and the same problem, only to get worse. The second is the airbags. I was involved in an accident with excessive front end damage as well as totaled the car that was hit by me. The airbags never deployed, fortunately, I was not injured. Chrysler refuses to speak to me about these this issue. That keep telling me that because my auto insurance was involved then they would have to do a subrogation report. This is untrue as per my insurance company. This report only needs to be filled out if the driver or passenger's were injured from the accident. Well since there was no injuries, then there is no need for a report. This incident is a consumers complaint. Chrysler doesn't see it that way. They are trying to find every excuse in the book to not cooperate with my complaints. What is Chrysler waiting for? someone to die if my van is to become into another accident? well, I do not want to wait for that to happen. They need to find the problem and fix it before something bad happens again. This issue happened on 01/17/14.

I am a mechanic and my mother owns a 2010 Dodge Journey it has 60000 on the odometer and I have replaced the rotors/pads 3 times with napa premium grade not the junk factory my self. The front once and the back all 3 times. The stealership has done them 2 times on all four corners. No recall the dealership said everyone they sold has come in with the same issue (mostly the rear multiple times). Not even a service bulletin. . . How is this possible? how may times is this going to happen? consumer protection needs to get on this and file a class action lawsuit. Also same issue trying to find tires for this car was a real problem. She payed the same amount for the tires as I did for 33" m/ts for my expedition. The failure date was Saturday, May 10, 2014.

The car was a 2012 Dodge Caliber. I notice where ever my car has been parked for a couple of hours or more, when I put it in reverse to back up the rear brakes are grinding/rubbing whereas it vibrates the car. Now you may say that the brakes are worn but they're not. I've had them inspected and the pads are good. I've contacted the Chrysler Dodge CO and was given appointment to have this looked at but was told they could find anything wrong. I've ask a coupleof Dodge Caliber owners and was told they had the same problem, this person had high mileage on their vehicle, even a mechanic who works for Dodge said he was having the same problems. If you ask my opinion, I would say that the problem lies with the manufacturer of the brake pads and rotors. Not only when its cold but also when it rains. I'm writing to see if you can check out the Dodge Calibers and jeeps from the year 2006 - 2012. Thank you very much and I await your reply,[xxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6). This issue happened on Apr. 1, 2014.

The car involved was a 2011 Ford Edge. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is 2FMDK4KCXX_. While backing out of a parking space, the brake pedal was hard to push and the vehicle was slow to stop. The car started to stall and a warning "low engine oil pressure" was displayed, then the car recovered when in drive. Approximately a week later, the brakes were again hard to push while backing out of a parking space. In the following week, the same issue occurred multiple times. Last week, the brakes became hard to push and the vehicle was slow to stop while in drive. I have parked the car until service can be performed. Fluids and brake pads have been checked and are not the issue. In searching the web and various Ford forums, and speaking with a mechanic, it appears to be a brake booster issue. The car is a 2011 model with <24,000 miles and is three months out of manufacturers warranty. This issue happened on Apr. 1, 2014.

Early on I noticed that the brakes in my 2006 Acura Tl had a relatively soft feel in operation. Indeed, from the first day of ownership of the brand new car I'd been surprised at the difference from my previous car -- a 1995 Nissan maxima -- which had solid feeling brakes. I attributed this softness to the new car's greater weight -- the brakes did after all, stop the car. But they never felt truly secure. In the last 2 years, the softness progressed slowly at first, and then worsening with an increasing rate of decline. At the start of July 2013, I was alarmed to find that I needed to pump the brakes for them to engage and stop the car. On 7/3/2013 the mechanic I saw found that air was in the lines, and that this apparently had let the right rear pads stay in contact with the disc requiring servicing of that portion of the system. He alerted me that a defective brake modulator problem was known to affect many Tls of that time period. As it is an expensive part and not yet recalled, we opted to bleed the lines and fix the other damage hoping it would turn out that the line had simply leaked somehow. The drive away was the first & only time I've ever felt solid brakes on this car. But before I'd reached my home 10 miles away, they'd become spongy. By the next day I needed to pump them. Clearly, the modulator is introducing air to the lines. I essentially set the car aside while deciding whether I should replace it or fix it. I'm about to replace the modulator at my expense as I've decided I'm not prepared to buy a new car after all, but the brakes must be made safe. Acura has issued a bulletin, but they've not accepted responsibility for selling new cars with a defective part that completely fails, eventually. The problem they've imposed on the public is serious. Please don't wait for there to be a death before requiring a recall of the part by Acura. Thank you. This issue happened on Jan. 1, 2006.

The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was JH4CU2F67A_. Acura Tsx 2010 rear brakes are prematurely wearing. During last visit to the dealer (around 27,000 miles) I was told that my rear break pads have only 3mm of ceramic left. I was very surprized by this news, but did not get them repalced at that time. Now I went ahead and replaced rear break pads myself and was very shocked to see that the pads that are in contact with claipers are alomost gone while pads that are on the outer side of the wheel still have more than 50% of life left in them. I will save the break pads so let me know if you want to see them. It was Mar. 17, 2013 when this brake disc pads issue happened.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2010 Honda Accord. Took car for routine service and was told rear brake pads and rotors were worn and needed to be replaced, after only 38,856 miles. My VIN number is not listed as eligible in 2010 Honda brake recall settlement. I think Honda should be responsible for these repairs. The failure date was Monday, May 19, 2014.

The car was a 2012 Honda Pilot. When braking at speeds above 50 mph, there is a vibration at the steering wheel. I brought the vehicle to a Honda dealer and was told the front rotors should be refaced when the car needs new brake pads. I have had a 2006,2009, and 2012 Pilot. My driving habits have not changed, the mileage per year is consistent, and there has been no hard or excessive braking. I have not had this problem with the other model years. So, what's the problem? are the current rotors thinner or inferior?. This issue happened on 11/20/13.

The car is a 2009 Hyundai Sonata. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 5NPET46C89_. I have had to replace my rear brakes and rotors twice in 5yrs. The first was in may of 2012. The vehicle had 28,000 miles. There was no warning lights my first indication was a dragging sound. I just had them replaced again April 2014 with 42. 000 miles. Again no warning until the horrible grinding sound. Also many times after long trips there is a distinct burning smell. I was told by the dealer that it was my tires. Another repair company told me it was my brakes getting hot. They said that the rear brakes are constantly engaged thus burning the pads and decreasing gas millage. Other people have reported the same problem though Hyundai denies it. It is a huge safety issue!!. This brake disc pads problem happened on Wed., May. 2, 2012.

The car involved was a 2008 Hyundai Veracruz. I was having issues with the breaks and it came to the point after replacing the pads and rotors and almost crashing into the cars in front of me that I took it to the dealer. I thought it may just need an adjustment on the computer but the diagnosis was "internal failure of the hydraulic electronic control unit". . I am shocked because the car is only 5 years old. I started doing research and found that the Hyundai genesis was recalled for this very same reason. The dealer wants $2600 to replace it and told me they had not heard of this happening with a Veracruz. If the same components or fluid was used in the Veracruz as was used in the genesis - it would have the same issues but I don't see any recalls. I was told my car is dangerous to drive but I don't have $2,600 to dish out to get it fixed. I would like some assistance in finding out if other Hyundai Veracruz owners have reported the same. How does a recall get issued?. This brake disc pads problem happened on March 21, 2014.

The vehicle involved was a 2009 Infiniti G37. Technical service bulletin itb09-037 from Infiniti states overheating of the brakes can cause brake judder. They recommend installing a brake backing plate, resurfacing, or replacing the rotors. I took my car to my inifiniti dealer and the plate was installed. The front rotors were resurfaced, brake pads replaced, and I still had the brake judder. I took it back and they resurfaced the rear rotors and recommended balancing and rotating tires. I did this (at my own cost) and the brake judder is still present. The car had 15,000 miles when the problem occurred. I feel a mandatory replacement of the rotors and the pads at the same time is required. The warped rotors continue to cause vibration after resurfacing and my dealer will not replace them at cost. The failure date was 08/26/10.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2011 Jeep Cherokee. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1J4RR6GT6B_. I purchased the above listed vehicle in April 2013, had to bring it back for an issue with the brakes. I had little to no pedal, brought the vehicle into the dealer waited approximately two weeks and the vehicle was returned to me. Service writer stated that being the truck was on the lot for a while, the brakes got warped. Was told that the brakes were changed. I left with the vehicle that had a little more pedal since I brought it into service. On or about the first week of Feb. 2014 I experienced my brake pedal was hard as a rock and I was unable to stop the vehicle. Brought my vehicle into service explained to them what was going on and they said it was the brake boosters. I get into my vehicle a few days later and once again I was not able to stop the vehicle, this time I almost was involved in an accident. I drove the vehicle almost 10 miles at 20 mph to the dealership and demanded they fix the brakes. The service manager came out got into my vehicle drove it down the street while I was the vehicle,the vehicle was there for almost five weeks, I finally received a call on April 10, 2014 that my vehicle was ready. I get into the vehicle I press on the brake pedal and the pedal goes right to the floor. I was advised by the service writer that I needed rear brakes and that is why its doing that. The cost for rear brakes was about 500. 00, I declined and told the service writer I had my brakes done several months ago and they should not be in need of repair. He looked into the system and told me only my front brakes were repaired, they just surfaced the rotors and put the same pads back on. I went to the show room asked for a 2011 grand Cherokee brought it to the service department and showed them a vehicle with 6000 more miles than mine and two millimeters less pad than mine and the brake pedal was full. It was Thursday, June 6, 2013 when this brake disc pads issue happened.

Went to the dealership immediately thinking my Jeep needed brake pads. . . Which I paid to replace anyway to be on the safe side. There was a brake recall from Chrysler on 2012 Jeeps gc & also reported the breaking problem to Jeep headquarters on 2 different occasions. I was told I would receive a recall notice, my reports are on file. It's almost 2 months & I still have not received a recall notice from Chrysler I don't understand what is taking Chrysler so long to send out recall notices when a braking problem is at stake & has been reported to Chrysler & the Jeep dealership. I also checked with my dealership today ( Apr 22nd) to see if chrisler perhaps has sent the recall to them via messaging ?????????? no luck Chrysler has my VIN # & report on file, however as of today I have not received a recall notice.

Recently the brakes are not working. It is not the brake pads, but a hissing sound in the line and no brakes.

The car is a 2011 Mazda cx-9. I just stated noticing issues with my brakes, I started hearing a low hissing noise and noticed that I was having a hard time coming to a complete stop. I need to pump the brakes several times to slow down and then once stopped the brakes go all the way to the floor. I took my Cx9 in today July 8, 2013 to have the brakes checked and the oil changed. I was told the breaks and pads are fine but there is something wrong with the brakes. They tried flushing the lines and that did not help. They told me they could not look at the car further until Wednesday July 10th. I asked if the car was safe to drive they said it was and to go slowly upon reaching a light and make sure to pump the breaks so I can stop in time and not go through the intersection. This is very alarming to me since an accident can occur this is my only vehicle and I need to get back and forth to work. They told me they needed to call the Mazda help line to find out what is wrong with the breaks. After researching on line today Mazda Cx9 brake issues am very interested to see what they say and if it is the same problem that has been reported since 2008 with this model. I am very upset since I take very good care of my car and always take it to the Mazda dealer for service. My vehicle is at the 37,000 mark which appears to be the point when this has been a problem for other vehicles. I hope that Mazda will cover the costs to fix the car and that I don't get into an accident between now and Wednesday. It was Monday, July 8, 2013 when this brake disc pads issue occurred.

The vehicle involved was a 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse. As I was driving down a congested road, I tried to come to a stop and the peddle went all the way down to the floorboard. I tried pulling the emergency brake and that didn't work either. At that point I avoided a collision by going on the median and down shifted. The car, luckily, is a 5 speed. My husband replaced the brake pads a month or so before that, so he checked to be sure the lines were bled correctly. Which they were. This was the first instance. Today was the scariest. It was raining and I was going 45 in the middle lane. The car in front of me stopped suddenly and I tried, too. The front end kind of hopped up a few times as I tried to apply the brakes and e brake. Again, by the grace of god, I was far enough away that I didn't hit him. Being wary after the first incident, I stay far back from other cars. Every time this happens, I hear a whining sound when the peddle is pumped and until the peddle comes back all the way up. This year should be recalled, too. Tallahassee has no dealership, so my closet option is about an hour and a half away. It was Monday, September 2, 2013 when this brake disc pads issue happened.

Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 3N1CN7AP1D_. I took my new 2013 Nissan Versa back for the new brakes shoes as directed by my dealer. I am told they replaced the back brake pads and had to turn the rotors. I have never had a new car with this kind of issue. The man who talked to me talked about dust and rust as possible reasons or even setting a car up & not using it. . . My car is always parked inside and an 8 month old car with nine thousands miles plus hardly "sets up. " I want to carry my grandchildren in this car & now fear there is a defect in the braking system. The squealing crunching sound the car was making is gone. This problem occurred on 10/29/2013.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2004 Saturn Vue. 1. Brakes. I have had the front brakes and rotors replaced/cut down on this car on the average of about every 20k. I consider this abnormal wear and before you respond with driving conditions, and my other Saturn sl needed brakes on the average of 60k with the same driving conditions. When I questioned soe they told me that it was my driving habits, but as of the recent events, I have begun to question their diagnosis of any problems related to my car. 2. Transmission shifting/wobble/shimmy/vibration. I have complained since new that this transmission has shifted rough, and I was told working as designed. Nobody has been able to find anything wrong yet this problem still exists. 3. Tire wear related to recall. I had to request that my vehicle have the recall performed on it. Yet, after doing research and watching my tires wear. Sometimes in less that 15k something I would consider prematurely, even for performance tires, and reading several owner sites my wear is indicative of a service not being performed. 4. Wheel bearing wear. I have had to have my front wheel bearings replaced 2x in the last 30k. The first occurrence was at 72k when the first replacement was made, and the 2nd was at 99k it was during the 72k service I complained my rotors warping(since I had 2 sets replaced/cut previously) and I was told it was just worn tires and they would not even consider the brake issue, until I purchased new tires. I purchased new tires and the wobbly sound was louder than now that there was new tires on the vehicle. So then recommended replacing the rotors, when I asked about brake pads they told me it was unnecessary. Seemingly illogical, since you had to remove the brake pads anyway, and tired of arguing I did not push the issue, as I needed my car, and loaner availability seemed to dry up since I was out so far out of the factory warranty. It was Apr. 4, 2008 when this brake disc pads issue happened.

The car involved is a 2012 Subaru Legacy. Vehicle vibrates and pulsates every time you apply the brakes while driving at speeds above 50 mph- vibrations are felt throughout the vehicle and the steering wheel. On March 11th; Subaru dealership technicians took a look at the problem and drove the vehicle and confirmed the steering wheel vibrations while braking on speeds above 50 mph, they also found all brakes at 7mm and front rotors with added material to it measuring above 0. 0008" - technicians recommended a simple resurface of rotors (charged at owners expense) or to wait until the condition worsen ??? (affecting other suspension, steering or brakes components) in order to repair the vehicle using the warranty. Currently my car has 22,345 and it already continues to pulsate every time I apply the brakes at speeds well above 50 mph. Nothing was say about the brake pads conditions or quality. I did noted on many Subaru forums online that many Subaru owners have experience this issue but it seems that no one has reported such issues to the NHTSA. It was Sunday, March 9, 2014 when this brake disc pads issue happened.

The vehicle is a 2007 Suzuki Xl7. The brakes of the car becomes hard and locks the car from moving. The dash board will show traction light on with the reading "traction control service / stability control service" the first incident happened September 2010. Miles covered 55391 . Matter taken with Suzuki and the dealer. They said the brake pads wore out, so replaced the pads and the rotor for $536. 00. The problem repeated but after 2 hrs brakes got released. The traction control and stability control switch was put off to avoid the danger of the vehicle getting auto braked in the middle of the highway. However the switch did not work and the problem repeated two times. Taken up with another dealer. They have stated that brakes and rotor need to be replaced with certain other kits for a price of $2100. Talking with Suzuki and they stated that the vehicle is not under warranty. Hence, I have to pay for the repair. I fail to understand how can the brake pads lock the moving vehicle automatically. It is the most dangerous situation especially on highways. Someone please help. It was 03/05/2011 when this brake disc pads issue occurred.

The car involved is a 2011 Volkswagen Routan. The vw Routan recently when I got from the deleship I notice that everytime that I would apply the brakes while driving on the freeway then entire van would vibrate and the steering wheel would vibrate even more I did some research and I found that I wasn't the only Routan owner having brake problems so it looks like the brake rottors are over heating that then caused the rottors to warped!!! so I took the car to the vw dealership and they had to replace all four rottors and brake pads!! but before replacing them they keep telling me that it was driver error. So now a year and half after the vw dealership fix the problem the car needs all new brake rottors and pads again due to the over heating that caused the rottors to warped and now they won't fix the problem again because the warranty expired;. It was Monday, Nov. 5, 2012 when this brake disc pads issue happened.

The vehicle identification number (VIN) is YV4CY98247_. Brake system failure 3 months after brake system service by an authorized dealer. I had my 2007 Volvo Xc90 serviced by momentum Volvo in houston texas. They have serviced brake system and installed new brake pads. 3 months later, the brake system started to perform poorly, car was unstable when braking and brakes would make a screeching noise. Another Volvo dealer diagnosed failure of brake pads and rotors and installed new parts for a cost of $600. 00 Volvo claims that this is not warranty related item even though the parts have been installed only 3 months ago. I believe, this problem is serious enough for consideration for a recall as consumers my not be aware of poor brake system condition soon after the brake system service and this may lead to an unsafe or hazardous situation. This problem occurred on Dec. 20, 2009.

The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was YV4CY59256_. On January 29, 2007 I took my 2006 Volvo Xc90 2wd to the Volvo dealer for the 15,000 mile scheduled service to include the scheduled tire rotation and balance. The car had 14,764 miles. The service advisor called later in the day to state that (1) I needed front brake pads, and (2) needed four new tires because the original equipment tires were completely worn out. When I asked why those items were needed, he told me (1) the front brake pads wear early because they aren't large enough to support the weight of the car, and (2) the original 17" pirellii scorpion zero tires are a performance tire and "too soft" for the vehicle and thus wear out prematurely. He estimated I had about 1 or 2 mm of tread left, and advised me not to drive in the rain. I spoke to the Volvo dealer service manager the same day who said he would look into getting me 4 new tires free from pirelli as a one-time "goodwill" gesture. On January 30, 2007, the Volvo service manager called to say that because my car was under 15,000 miles pirelli had agreed to replace all 4 tires free. The 17" tires needed to be ordered and would arrive in 4-6 weeks. The service manager assured me that my car was safe to drive until the new tires were installed. On March 18, 2007 I noticed that the tread had completely worn away on both back tires, and belt is showing through. On March 19, 2007 I called the Volvo dealer to find out what was the status of my new pirelli tires and was told that there were no 17" pirelli tires in stock, and they had to be special ordered. I told the service scheduler that the car is undrivable because the tires are completely bald. I am still waiting for the Volvo dealer to call me back. This brake disc pads issue occurred 01/29/06.

The VIN of this vehicle is WAUGFAFC0E_. 2014 Audi A6. Consumer writes in regards to a loud screeching noise when brakes are applied. The consumer also stated there was smoke coming out of the tail pipe, and when she parked the vehicle in the garage, smoke filled the entire garage. The vehicle was towed to the dealership. An inspection revealed a plastic bag was caught in the vent pipe and melted, which was the cause of the smoke and smell coming from the vehicle. As to the screeching sound when the brake was applied, the consumer was informed that small sounds were heard and the brake pads were cleaned. The service department suggested, the vehicle be driven more and that should solve the oxidation problem. The consumer drove the vehicle more often. However as she periodically slowed down, there was a screeching sound, even louder than ever before. This problem occurred on Mon., Dec. 2, 2013.

Car is a new (11 /21/09) BMW Z4 with less than 2,000 miles. When driving in suburban traffic at approximately 45mph, driver signaled for a right hand turn at an intersection without a traffic light. When brakes were applied, there was virtually no stopping power. Unable to slow for the right turn, driver proceeded to the next turn while applying all of the physical pressure she could muster, which finally slowed the car top the point it could be turned and stopped. If this brake failure had occurred when there was stopped traffic, an accident would have certainly occurred. The problem was a catastrophic failure of the power brakes hydraulic booster. Additionally, no warning light ever came on before, during or after the brake failure. The BMW service department said that there are warning lights for low fluid and low pads, but not for booster failure, which is unbelievable. It was Friday, February 5, 2010 when this brake disc pads issue occurred.

The vehicle is a 2003 Buick Lesabre. VIN of the vehicle was 1G4HP52K63_. Front disc brake pads do not wear evenly. The inboard pad (on both wheels) wears faster than the outboard pad. Problem is, only the outboard pads have the wear alerter. So, if you don't inspect your front brakes frequently, the inboard pad lining can wear completely away without your knowledge, cause damage to the front brake rotor and reduce braking to an unsafe level. I have seen this condition on more than one Buick Lesabre. The failure date was 06/01/09.

The car is a 2010 Buick Enclave. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 5GALVBED2A_. Rear brakes over heated. An inspection revealed that the brake pads were frozen due to rust and worn at an angle and not even causing metal to metal contact. Rear pads and rotors had to be replaced at a cost of $ 347. 62. If this had been caught during normal inspection intervals I don't beleive the rotors would have had to be replaced. Perhaps inspection and cleaning of brake pads should be checked at certian intervals in the northen areas where snow and ice are a problem. Note this hapened apon return home from last scheduled maintenance. I had to make a new apointment to have my brakes checked, a distance of about 30 miles. It was September 12, 2013 when this brake disc pads issue happened.
