#133 of 135 2010 Altima brake concerns
Apr 26, 2012 (11:40 am)
Our 2010 Altima was recently in the dealership for a scheduled oil change. The tech informed us the brake pads should be changed as approx. 20% brake surface was remaining. The car has 50k miles so I saw no reason to doubt him. I've been doing brake work since I was a teenager. I removed the brake calipers and rotors. I had all 4 rotors re-surfaced at a reputable establishment that I've dealt with for years. They informed me the front two were warped but could be turned within tolerance to correct the issue. I replaced the original pads with semi metallic pads. Installation was a breeze. No issues. Now I've noticed a noise coming from the rear brakes. Inspection revealed a cross hatch style pattern on both back rotors. I checked the front and found something similar but not as pronounced. My question - Is this normal for a Nissan brake pad break in period? I've never seen this happen on any other vehicle before. Any help is appreciated!

I had replaced all 4 rotors on my 2007 Altima 2.5S at 28k miles in 2010. I had to replace the front rotors again at 45k miles 2 days ago. Rear pads were replaced in 2010. Front ones replaced now. The service guy gave me the same line - you must be harsh on the brakes. I am not, at all. This does not look normal to me. I like the car otherwise but hate the fact that I have had to spend $1,000 on brakes already.
Did the original poster get anywhere with Nissan on this issue?
