I just purchased a 2007 Ford Five Hundred and found many communications the previous/original owner had with various service centers regarding the premature wear on the rear rotors and brakes, with no resolution of the problem.
The vehicle was repaired at one point using the Ford recommended upgrade and then had the brakes/rotors replaced several times afterward. The replacements occurred approximately every 4,000 - 6,000 miles. Apparently, the final solution was to get rid of the car.
On one Internet site I found an owner that had the pads replaced with the Wagner Thermo Quiet pads and there was no further problems. It was the only positive statement I saw on this issue.
Any other recommendations?
