2007 Land Rover LR3 Question: Brakes replaced at 22k and 31k miles

 

Question

Visitor, 4.0L V6, Winnetka, IL, November 19, 2010, 14:12

Had my entire brake system replaced when the car was 2 yrs old/22k miles on it. Immediately after the job..my wheels were making a rubbing/grinding sound. I had to take the car back to the dealer 2xs shortly after the initial brake replacement to have it corrected. I told them I was worried that the brakes would wear out prematurely from the grinding. They said no. Here it is 1 year later and they are telling me the rear brakes need to be totally replaced including rotors and sensors. I'm totally incensed about this. Can anyone provide insight. By the way, I do local driving w/ a 1800 mile trip thrown in once a year.

    Unfortunately on these the brakes are wearing out very quickly. I was also surprised to see the pads worn down at 20K, at first we suspected fault, but than came the rest with the same problem. We had some clients who choose the expensive cross drilled discs with ceramic pads and they seems to last longer.
    Make sure you get a brake system flash in every 2 years.
