David, your rear brakes seizing up may be due to sticky calipers on the rear drums. I bought a 2004 Ion just a few months ago and at the first oil change the mechanic had to spray half a can of brake cleaner on the rear drums and calipers because there was an incredible amount of dust accumulation after only 32,000 miles. I've also had a few "nuisance" occurences, like the trunk button pushing through the console...I'm not sure yet how to rate this car...it does start and drive well however, and my MPG is 32 so far as an average, so I love it at the gas pump but not when I hit a bump and everything feels like its going to fall off !
#6 of 6 How do you calculate labor charges for a service?

My local service center is estimating about 420 dollars to replace 2 brake rotors and a tag light. (includes the cost of parts).
