I have been driving 30+ years - and was told I had to replace the brake pads and discs on my 2 1/2 year old B-Max at 17,000 miles. Not covered by Warranty because it is "Wear and tear" - never happened before and I believe something is not up to standard with these brake pads - cost to replace was 310. I had a conversation with Fords and they just went back to the garage and said same - it is wear and tear - no way - I drive to station and back - this car is not heavily used. I do not brake that hard.

Just had my first MOT at 28,500 miles and been told that my front pads are only 20% worn. 2.2mm on my front tyres, so I will replace them at 30k. Rear tyres have loads of tread still.

Obviously the way one drives will impact on tyres and brakes, but I still think that some garages are less than honest about the need for early replacement of pads and disks.

B Max Titanium X 1.0 125 bhp in Magnetic with built in SatNav and rear sensors.

Very similar story to my bmax at the 3 year point.

1.6 tdci, remapped to 120 bhp, Panther Black Titanium with rear view camera, nav pac and front sensors. Always willing to stop & help in any situation I can. Karma is a beautiful thing.

Don't forget that short journeys with minimal braking causes rust to build up on brake discs and that can be the downfall of relatively "new" pads and discs.
