2011 Ford Transit Connect Question: Are there any other Transit Connect owners having front and rear brake problems

 

Question

I have had to replace both front brake pads, rotors and hardware. The rear drum and brake shoes were also replaced
Neither the front or rear brakes could be saved, to far out of spec.

    Nothing abnormal about needing brakes. Everyone uses their car differently, so the intervals are different, but needing pads and rotors is normal with many cars here in the rust belt. I can't say what happened in AZ since wouldn't expect to see the corrosion there that we get here.
