Brake Replacement

This may seem to be a strange topic for a blog post, in rocksnl but I feel that there are many people, like me, who are frustrated with the cost and early replacement of their brakes.

Recently, I took my car to have the brakes checked out and was told that the cost would be over $600.00. The disc brakes and calipers had to be replaced. Fifteen months ago I had the same work done. There was only 10,000 miles on the ones that I had replaced. I only drive in a rural community!

Brake pads need to be replaced after about 50,000 miles on average. Some need to be replaced after 25,000, while others can last for 70,000 miles. To get a more accurate number for your car’s specific needs, consult the car’s manual. There are other indicators that can also communicate that the brake pads are on their last leg.

I did bring the original invoice to the garage, prior to having the work done, but couldn’t get an answer as to why I had to have the brakes replaced in such a short mileage span.

In my opinion, I was taken in. There is no way that the brakes should wear out that quickly. It would mean that I would have to pay over $6,000.00 in brake repairs if driving 100,000 miles.

Anybody else having this problem??
