Question about 2005 Acura TSX
My Acura dealer just told me I need new rear brakes and rotors on my 2005 TSX. There is only 23K miles on the car. I trust the service dept., as I've been going there for years. 23K seems low to me for a pad and rotor replacement. Could it be due to the driving conditions in the area I live in (Washington DC metro area), or could it be more of a function of how the car is driven by the driver?
Thats low mileage for an 05...congrats. It is also way way low to be needing rear brakes!!!, The front brakes ALWAYS need replacement before the rear, unless you have a malfunction...or have been driving with the emergency brake on, (the emergency brake just works on the rear). Also, unless the brakes have been metal on metal, no way you should need new rear rotors with that mileage...I realize you trust your dealer, but, I'd get a 2nd opinion. As for the driving, sure, driving habits have a bearing on brake wear, and yes, you have probably done alot of stop and start, but probably at low speeds also. At any rate, you should not be replacing rear pads and certainly not rotors with 23K...unless there is another problem..Hope this helps!
