#467 of 476 06 Freestyle Rear Break
Oct 22, 2010 (9:35 am)
I have 06 FS, have the rear break recall at 5k. Get a new rear pad and re-surface rotor. I was told by the dealership service manager yesterday that I need new rear pad again at ony 33k. I was told not cover by any warranty and thank you for $200+. Front pad never serviced and still in very good shape. I have other cars driving for 60k still with original pads. Is there a design flaw? Anyone file any complaint?

Oh yes ma'am! And they actually sent out a recall on them!!!!! Which I used and replaced them at 32,000 miles. Of course they said it was the pads. And 30,000 miles later they have to be replaced again. These cars should not be having that. I am of course a "woman driver" as my husband states so my front brakes should be the ones needing to be replaced and i haven't had a problem with them. so i have had mine done twice with 82000 miles on my car! i was told the rear brakes should be lasting atleast 100,000 miles. My in laws own a 2006 and have replaced theirs 4 times!

#471 of 476 Stuck special tool in rear caliper
Jun 07, 2011 (4:33 pm)
I tried using the special tool from autozone and got the drivers side caliper back. I then used it on the passengerside and it didn't work...Long story short the tool is now stuck in the caliper and I can't get the cylinder to compress. Any suggestions?

The tool is stuck by the cylinder being too far out to be able to remove it.

#474 of 476 Replaced with ceramic pads.

I replaced after second set wore out, OEM RECALL, with ceramic pads. No problems for 40,000 miles.
MY EXPERIENCE IS TO STAY AWAY FROM THE STEALERSHIPS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLY.
