Kilometer Reading at the time of Brake pad change : 24333
kms . Why brake's gave off this soon ?
My rotors where having some problem like it used to get lines after few thousand kilometers of running and I've reported it on my first service itself. They've polished the rotor and kept back it. All was fine till few thousand km's and again the same problem popped up. This time i used to get some shivering from the brake pedal every time I apply the brakes. So talked to them much more seriously and what they done was again polishing.
Then after few thousand km's I felt the brakes are low and went for a change. Since the rotors had some issues, and the brake pads on my one side where having some quality issues
You can see in the photos attached. Together gave me a comparatively low brake pad life,although they are claiming that it is a better figure. And that's why the bill popped up to a whooping 6 k for a brake change.
For a normal brake pads change, the bill should come around 3 k. But as i had earlier problem's , they polished the rotor's, bleed the lines, pour new brake fluid, and new pad's whole together a whooping 6 k. I was pissed off by seeing the bill and gave a complaint to the Customer Relation's and they where very fast to respond. Finally after so many talking , they said, if the problem's with still persist, They Will change the rotors under warranty
That was a total relief for me since I've reported the problem 3 times and a complaint can do the justice. Now let the pictures take over.
Check the condition of both the set. Wear is not even on both set.
The pad's which dusted away.
See the wear indicator and the amount of pad left on the other set. This should have lasted at least for 6000-7000 kms. They are saying that some of the first lot vehicle's had similar problem's and since that, they've improved the quality of the brake pads,That's the only good news for time being !!
