:( Yes, I can already hear the grinding on the rear passenger side. What do you all recommend for replacing the brake pads? Should I go OEM or are there better brake pads out there?

Edit: Sean, with all those miles on your car, have you had to replace the brakes?

I guess I'll be the first to research and report on this subject. I'll get the brakes checked out and see what happens...

Doesn't sound right to me at all, but I can hear the grinding and the pad looks about gone..who knows, maybe it's me. But I couldn't believe I already needed brakes :confused:

Checking with service assist systom, There was a parking brake adjustment problem. Wouldn't hurt to have it checked out.

I would check on any hidden warantees, especially with such low mileage.

Cheers.

CoCo, 4 year old car, new pads and calipers. Maybe even rotors. I have a couple in my garage from when I had my trio of 94 Altys. They were turned once but still within tollerance.

They are two piece if they are the same as the 94. Rotor is about $40us new here. I can change them in my sleep. The calipers may only need new sliders or just lube.

I won my battle with the Dealer but that is because I am Loved....
That is exactly what the Service Manager said. I`m still laughing also. I now have to go back to the origional assessment of "My Nissan Dealer is the Best".

BTW: I can`t reach U by E...........rat!

Hidden warranties? No such thing it's either warranty or it isn't. If it's a hidden warranty it's because the dealer was to stupid to know it was covered.:p

brake warranty

Brakes are covered for three years/36 k. Except for normal wear, but if it is uneven wear, then there isn't any reason for them not to replace them. Good luck, and be persistant.

Several GM cars I owned had the brakes replaced under warantees that were not documented, but existed. I think it related to excessive wear under 10,000 miles, or something like that. Nissan may have something similiar but not advertised. It may be worth a shot. :)

Nissan did have problems with brake pad material and they know it, They've come out with several updated brake pads lately, But getting them to kick down might not be that easy. Brake pad manufactures are being forced to go with organic materials, which is softer causing premature brake pads wear. Thank our govement for that.

Doesn`t Nissan(and many others) claim that by using a softer organic material, the rotors will last considerably longer, albeit the pads have to be changed frequently. The Cost will balance Out. I have no problem with that?:cool:
