car   Brake Drum problem 2
Failure Date: 11/21/2002

I have just had my front rotors replaced twice. Now I was notified by the dealership that in order to resolve a "knocking" noise in the rear when braking. I would have to have my rear rotors and rear axles replace. Also it seems as if I am having a front end alignment performed at least every 3 months. I am very concerned, because this 2000 Cherokee sport is my only mode of transportation. I am the mother of two young sons, so this vehicle is constantly on the go. I can not afford any mishaps especially when my children's lives are concerned. Please contact me @ taca73@msn. Com. Dt.
