This may be more of a stupid question…but wanted to ask a community that knows more about cars than I do.
1.) I had my brakes replaced end of September 2017.
2.) I just moved out of state, but I do have to make a trip in the next 2 weeks to the state I got my brakes done in.
3.) They only replaced the brake pads& rotors in the rear (I think it was 500-700, normal price around the shops in chicago in my area)
4.) my back passenger side starting making noises…get it check out and the caliper is bad (not the right terminology, but you get what I mean). It’s caused a hot spot in my rotor, the ridges that were there are completely gone and a part of it is “flat” and burned, making a scraping noise when driving… the rotor only went back because of the calipers, but they said the break pads were also uneven.
5.) I know I got my breaks done in September…should they have told me about my calipers then? Or do they really go bad that quickly? I’ve maybe drven my car 4k miles since then. I called the old autoshop and they said since it was an “outside influence” my brakes are not under warranty for them to repair…
does that all sound right? I made 500-700 in september to pay to get the rear brakes fixed again??! The new shop said I need new calipers, rotor and brakepad for the rear…
