My disc brakes started grinding at 29.000 mi and I was told car needed both disc pads and new discs. Is this unusual at 30,000 miles? The newly replaced discs & pads are grinding every time I start the car at first. Should I bring back to service again?

That seems short. Mine (2004) lasted till 65K with a laid-back driving style. However, when the pads were replaced, there was visible uneven wear between left and right sides of the brakes; which could have shortened the life of the pads.

The repair shop said that the unevenness was not serious. Replacing the hardware kit and brake fluid should help. If not, the next step would be replacing the brake calipers.
