My mom has a pretty new subaru. Not sure of the model but its a crossover style on. Maybe a 2012 model?
Anyways, she has 27, 000 km on it. When she took it in to get it serviced she got quite the surprise. A $700 bill for break pads all fucked and the rotors completely screwed as well. She is a 55 year old lady who drives to get groceries or go to work at the hospital. We don't salt our driveway. We live in BC.
27,000 km seems early for something like this to happen. The Subaru dealership said they perform certain checks at certain periodic services. Subaru (the company) tells the dealership when checkups are to be performed. Apparently the break checkups have been lacking lately because they only say they need to be check every "x" amount of kms. Anyways, seems pretty lame for a car company.
Spark notes - Moms new Subaru had fucked break pads/rotors after 27,000 km of easy driving. $700 bill not covered by Subaru. Anyone else had this?
