2005 Cadillac STS Q&A
2005 Cadillac STS Question: 69,000. could rear brakes and drums really be bad already?
is it possible that my 2005 cadillac sts needs rear brakes and drums @ 69,000 miles? i am hearing a squeak from the left rear wheel when brakes are applied. i am concerned the dealer may be trying to pull a fast one, since they tried once before with my daughters old buick. - Visitor
the average life of brakes is 15-20k. 69k is excellent mileage. you must be a good driver to get this much mileage. i would change them as well as the rotors. Roy - mastertech6371
There should be discs/pads on the rear also. 69K i a good mileage out of discs and pads even on highway. Zee - ZeeTech
My number is probably.. $800. And that's probably a little high for Illinois. You may want to get another quote or negotiate a little; they may be willing to ease some of the cost. - DaveJHM
