I think it is because your caps lock key is on. Try fixing that and maybe your brake problems will go away as well.

None of us who write in mixed case ever have brake problems.

Ok, I'll stop being a smart @$$ Of course brakes wear out, and maybe even warp.

Just get new ones, and install them, or have your local mechanic, or perhaps a case of barley pops and some local CEG'ers can hook you up.

Welcome to the site. Just so you know, a PM stands for a Private Message. You can PM mcgainer by clicking on his name in his post, and then clicking Send a Private Message.

Otherwise, search around in the brake forums, and you'll find alot of helpful information.

22k is pretty quick. I'm at 55k and just now coming up on rotor and pad replacement. Maybe some smart-ass could address the man's question?

Well...

maybe he inadvertantly rests his foot on the brakes...
maybe he got a lemon pair of pads...
maybe he does mainly city driving with lots of stop/go...
maybe the rotors are warped form improper lug torque...
maybe he got a lemon pair of rotors...

The point is that every one of these points have been addressed in the archives. Lotsa useful and expert opinions, experiences, and facts.

He didn't even ask why. Just whether. A simple yes or no would have sufficed.

Although I have to admit, he needed a spanking for the caps lock thing.
