2001 Volvo S60: mileage 38,000. At about 17k I had to replace the front brake pads at my dealer, at that time the service center told me that Volvo does not cut their rotor. I thought that was a bit usual but they’re the experts. Now at 38k I need another brake job, I took my car to a local big box service center due to timing issues (I have an early commute and the dealer has limited Saturday service). They told me that I needed new rotors in the front. Now it’s been a few years since I rolled up my sleeves and did my own brake jobs, but 38k seemed to be a bit soon, I got the feeling I was being taken advantage of so I walked out. So my question is how long should I expect Volvo rotors to last?
Also I usually do my service with the dealer but as I said before sometimes it’s a bit difficult to find the time. How would I go about finding a reputable mechanic who works on foreign cars?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
have the same problem?
