    Astra VXr brakes grinding

    Just wondering...Has anybody else had problems with the front brakes grinding like mad? Took it to the dealers yesterday and they said its the brake pads that need changing due to a bad compound...

    They are being changed under warranty, just wondered if anyone else has had this problem.

    Mine squeal something rotten - they are getting swapped soon and then retrofitted to the signum so a change of pads will happen at the sametime

    Alcon perhaps
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
