Question about 2008 Chrysler Town & Country
Both our neighbors and I have 2008 town and country chrysler vans. Both had front pads and rotors gone at 20,000 and 25,000 miles. And, they are much more expensive to repair than other vehicles.
Depending on driving habits and where you drive premature pad wear can and is caused alot by improperly adjusted rear brakes and parking brake cables. With the rear brakes out of adjustment or not working properly the front brakes end up doing more up to 90% of the stopping of the car. Now a days people forget about the rear brakes be cause of the use of so-called self adjusters. I can tell you from over 22 years experience 90% of the time the self adjusters ether don't work at all or very poorly. So for you and your friend keep that in mind and have your rear brakes checked and adjusted every other oil change and the premature wear of your front pads will end.

Dodge, Plymouth, and Chrysler minivans are notorious for poor longevity of the front brake pads. Also, the low friction material "squeel" tabs are none to brake off or just not do the job they are meant to do. That is why people end up haveing to replace their rotors. I am an ASE certified mechanic with just under 15 years of experience. I tell all my customers with Chrysler minivan products to have their brakes at least once a year to avoid costly repair bills. If you can catch your brake pads before they start grinding into the rotors that's an expense everyone can afford to not have.
