I have a 2001 Ford Escape 4x4 that I purchased brand new. I take it to the dealership for regular routine maintenance and repairs. Since I purchased the vehicle, I have had to replace the master cylinder twice, and have had to install new rotors and drums 4 times. The mechanic has told me this is normal wear and tear. The parts and labor are over $1000 each time. Is this accurate? Can the brakes go bad after one year, year after year that would require complete replacement of the brake parts? I also have a Jeep Liberty that I have owned for over 3 years and have only had to replace pads and shoes once. The Ford is driven more often, it has 80K miles on it, but I have a hard time believing the brakes need replacing this often. Please help!
have the same problem?
