The problem is you got water somewhere it's not supposed to be. Have you checked for any trouble codes, that will help to isolate the problem.

Question Answered: 

It is possible that the dealership has encountered this problem and it's cause and other shops have not, but you are correct in getting a second opinion. I recommend that next time they try to sell you something, have them show you the problem. If it is leaking, then they should be able to show you the leak. An honest shop will do this. This helps to build trust and helps prevent you from being ripped off by unscrupulous mechanics.

Barbara, Brake pads should be replaced when they are at 15-20% remaining. Depending on where you live, what you drive and how you drive determines how long it will take to get to that point, so it's important to have them checked regularly.
