Model Years Affected: 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005

Average Mileage: 80,500 mi (31,000 mi - 130,000 mi)


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).

    I only have 31000 (with no sensor light or noise from the brakes) but was told to replace the brake pad and roters by the dealer, and the front pairs alone cost $620+
