Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).

Mercedes-Benz E550 Replace Brake Rotors When Pads are Worn and Squeaking
Mercedes-Benz E550 Problem
Average Mileage: 23,000 mi (20,000 mi - 26,000 mi)
during the last check up I mentioned a slight brake chatter in the front wheels during any stopping. Today I took it to the shop in Seattle that sells and services Mercedes Benz E550. He called this afternoon and said it was not covered on our maintance policy. He said we were dynamiting our brakes or riding our brakes? Neither are true it is pampered and garaged every night with regular maintance. The bill and parts quoted was new rotors front and rear, new pads front and rear. I am confused we bought a Mercedes Benz because it was German built and designed. To me it right now is coming up a little short. Help me out was this a recall?
Brake pads and rotors needed to be replaced....car was squeeking and the steering wheel would vibrate when the brakes were applied. Front brakes being replaced today. Holding off on the rear for now....
