Are there any other Transit Connect owners having front and rear brake problems

(2011 Ford Transit Connect)
in Glendale, AZ on March 16, 2014
I have had to replace both front brake pads, rotors and hardware. The rear drum and brake shoes were also replaced
Neither the front or rear brakes could be saved, to far out of spec.

LESS THAN 30,000 MILES, FLAT LAND DRIVING, SHORT TRIPS, AND BRAKES WERE CHECKED BY DEALERSHIP. ALL WITHIN SPECS. FRONT ROTORS HAD DEEP GROVES(REPLACED, THE BRAKE CYLINDER ASSY, HARDWARE AND PADS ALL HAG TO BE REPLACED. THE ROARING AND GRINDING FINALLY STOPPED. ITS BACK, AGAIN. EVERYTHING WAS REPLACED

Nothing abnormal about needing brakes. Everyone uses their car differently, so the intervals are different, but needing pads and rotors is normal with many cars here in the rust belt. I can't say what happened in AZ since wouldn't expect to see the corrosion there that we get here.

Engine do not compensate for the extra load. Engine had ETB and is already replaced. 137k miles on it.
Mainly in the mornings. Had exhaust tested-nothing, but I think they only checked for emissions.
