  1. Hi all, I hope someone can help me with the following issue jan 2017 I purchased a BMW X5 from cooper Durham, before purchasing the vehicle I was sent a video of the car. The on screen display showed 37000 miles for the front brake pads as they were new. Last week I took my car for an MOT to Sytner BMW Coventry they said the front pads and discs need replacing as they are 3.5mm. I was pretty surprised as i would expect them to last longer as I had done under 6000 miles. Cooper Durham want to inspect the car as they think there must be an issue. I'm around 2
  2. I have a 2012 Chrysler 300C which developed a rumbling in the front brakes in September last year. I took it into Halfords Auto Centre Nottingham whom diagnosed warped rotors. The car at this time had done 25K miles. They changed the rotors and pads, my warranty covered the cost bar the first £100. My outlay was circa £100. Roll forward to last week, the issue raised its head again. I took it back to Halfords asserting that although the replacement was 1 month outside their warranty, the car had only done 9K miles since the new rotors were fitted and asked that they replace them FO
  3. I just bought a 2007 Mazda MX5, 42000 on the clock and in good nick. After having it a few days - I called the guy as its pulling to the left on acceleration. Also - Diff noise is audible too. He picked it up - took it to Mazda for a health check and the report says: Front tyres are low changed battering in key fob slight corrosion to front discs and I was spot on about the Diff so when he's back from hols in 10 days time - he's gonna get the diff fixed and sorted. to be honest - I'd be expecting him to put 2 new tyres on it at £100 a piece for Bridgestone tyres (recommended
  4. Hi Hoping to get advice regarding an issue that has taken two years to investigate but I don't know where I stand regarding my rights and any form of recourse. June 2014 Car taken in for a service. This included replacing brake pads and discs as they were worn. The day after the service I emailed the garage informing them of excessive noise from the brakes. the garage advised to run in the brakes over a few hundred miles. However the excessive brake noise persisted and it was captured over a number of recordings which was shared on youtube. July 2014 The car was returne
  5. About 2 year ago I replaced the front brake pads along with the drums on my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The brake pads were EBC and supposed to eb British made premium brake pads. The one thing I have noticed is that now I get a lot of brake dust although my driving style has not changed and the brakes do not feel so positive. The latter has come to my attention recently. I am of the opinion that brake pads should last a lot longer than 18000 miles or am I incorrect?
  6. Took a car I recently purchased to Kwik Fit for full service and advised that front discs and pads were worn to the metal and advised they needed replacing. As I do around 100 miles per day and drive my kids around I agreed to get the work done, and I need the car. The cost to replace the discs and pads came to £368.70 on a 998cc Yaris, when I looked at the Toyota fixed repair price for the same job on the same car it is £210 inclusive. I have been a loyal customer of the Consett Kwik Fit for a number of years but this has really upset me. I did say the pri
  7. Hi, My wife purchased a BMW Mini from a secondhand car dealer in May this year. Car was at the top end of book price. It is a 2005 convertible. When looking at the car I noticed that the front discs and pad required replacement and that the rear discs and pads were approx 50% worn and that the offside rear caliper was holding on (i.e. not fully realising). They agreed to replace front discs and pads and to 'sort out' the rear caliper. When the car was picked up the front discs and pads had sure enough been replaced and the rear caliper was no longer holding on......
  8. I own a Hyundai IX20 CRDi 5 door (small MPV). It's a great car apart from one rather significant problem - which, according to the forums seems to be afflicting a lot of IX20 owners. My nearside brake caliper seized in the "handbrake on" position, the offside was working OK. The nearside brake disc overheated and was damaged as a consequence. I took the car back to the dealer and the failure was deemed to be a warranty claim (5 year warranty). Then I was told they would arrange a hire car as there were no parts on back-order, in fact the part would have to be manufactured and dispat
