Question about 2006 Dodge Charger
I have a 2006 Dodge Charger R/T - we purchased this vehicle brand new (9 miles on it) from the dealer in September of 2005. At 14,000 miles the rotors went and had to be replaced. Now at 28,000 miles the same issues are occurring and we are told the rotors need to be replaced - the brake pads still have 60% life on them. Is this normal for a 2006 Dodge Charger?
I have a Dodge Charger r/t bought it new. I have 46,000 miles on it. Notice it is using oil and at idle there is a pinging noise.

This is not normal if you are not an aggressive driver, if you really drive the car hard then yes it is normal, since it is an R/T I will assume you are the latter. Rotors get damaged from heat of hard braking and warp making the brake pedal pulsate or the front end shake or both when the brakes are applied, is this your issue? if so take it easy on the brakes, make less aggressive stops. You could go to aftermarket HD brakes (rotors, pads), check on line for these kinds of parts, many companies sell them.
