Hi I have a 2002 Mazda Protege5 with 139000kms on it. We noticed the brakes were squealing so we brought it into the dealer for a brake inspection which reported that the rear brake calipers had siezed. From asking around we've been informed that this is nearly impossible with a 2002, so I'm wondering if this is true or not. As well, we had brought it in 6 months ago for an inspection and asked to have the brake pads changed but they told us it wasn't necessary as they were at 70%, so my other question iis, Is this a problem that can occur in a 6 month period and would changing th brake pads have prevented it? Thanks for any advice.
