Squeaking/Worn Brake Pads May Require Rotor Replacement Also on Mercedes-Benz E350

Problem Description and Possible Solution

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 also have this problem on all of my rotors can I get them sanded down
Had to replace both rotors and Pads. Usually on a new car, Replace Pads first before replacing the rotors.
Disappointing since mostly highway driving My BMW X5 went to 80,000
Required pads and rotors to be replaced prematurely; without the possibility of turning the rotors
The second time I needed brake pads, I also needed rotors due to big grooves in my rotors.
bought car at 24700 mi as CPO. At 51400, i have heard no squeaking or anything but dealer says i need to have all brake pads and rotors replaced. only hear a thump noise when in reverse and come to a stop.
Break pads and rotors worn out need new
