Squeaky brake drama
My mazda dealer told me that the squeaking brakes were caused by the "composition of the brake pads". At 6k miles they charged me for an inspection and some grease that didn't work to stop the squeaking. I continued to drive until about 8k miles and took it back in and they sanded the rotors for free. That fix lasted about 72 hours. I continued, again, to drive on embarrassingly squeaky brakes until about 15k miles until I had enough money to have the pads and rotors completely replaced. I'm now at 28k miles and they're squeaking up a storm yet again. I bought this car brand new and I've already replaced the brakes, trans fluid, 1 tire, and had to do a fuel injection service. My Honda Civic had 1 new set of brakes put on at the 50k mark and I sold it at 90k miles so needless to say I'm a bit disappointed in the quality of this Mazda compared to other vehicles I've owned. I guess you get what you pay for. We're planning to trade it in next weekend before the squeaking gets too bad.
