I have 2007 Sentra with now 50K miles. Took in for routine pad replacement at my mechanic of 15 years who's done many on other vehicles. He put on Wagner pads. Within 3 weeks, rotors warped. Took back, resurfaced rotors, replaced pads, 3 weeks later, rotors warped with louder noise than before. Took back, replaced everything including pins with all Nissan parts, resurfaced rotors. 1 week later, noisy rotors again, but not as loud as earlier, but then, it's only been 1 week. Mechanic didn't charge me for all the labour, only parts, but that has ran me 150$ extra. Now he saws rotors must be replaced for another chunk of change. I'm trading the car in. Never in my life have I had a car that had anything other than a few squeals with new brake pads. What's the deal?

After having driven numerous rental 2013 Sentras, I've noticed that the brake pedal are pretty crappy...spongy and go almost to the floor. Noticed this on nearly new ones and others with over 8k on the odo...I work moving rental cars here in South Florida. Wonder why the brakes are so crappy in these particular vehicles? All the new Altimas I drive, a bunch, don't seem to have this same issue and I remember my '03 GXE having pretty sucky brakes also. What gives?
