Should my Mazda 2 need its brake discs skimmed at 30,000 kilometres?
I just took my Mazda 2 for a service at which I was informed that I need new brake pads and skimming of the brake discs (it is the 30,000 service). Is this not too early for skimming of the brake discs?
Surprising. But if you sit on the brakes after a long braking (for example into a roundabout) you could have warped the discs slightly. 30,000 (I guess kilometres) is short pad life, but not unknown, and, of course, the garage is allowing for wear up to the next service. There may be 10,000k of life left in the pads, but if the next service is at 20,000k they will recommend replacement.
