A grunting or grinding type noise may be noted from the front brakes. Our technicians tell us the problem is generally caused by the front brake caliper anchor brackets which can cause abnormal brake rotor and pad wear. The repair commonly involves replacing the brake pads and rotors and updating the caliper anchor brackets with revised parts.

2010 Lincoln MKS Reviews
I lease a 2010 Lincoln MKS. My lease is done in Feb.2012. I was planning on buying it but now I wonder if I should. The engine light comes on almost every time after I re-fuel. I took it to the dealership where I bought it. They tell me it needs a new catalytic converter. Otherwise, I love the car but should I buy it now? It only has 19,000 miles on it.
