I have had an SRI XP 1.8 VVT from new since October 2007.
I have driven just over 7000 miles in this time.
My rear brakes seem to have a bit problem and would like some advice.
Over the past couple of days whenever I start a journey from cold the first 2 or 3 times I apply the brakes (when gentle or firm, regardless of speed) I can hear what sounds like scraping (it's not loud, I had to turn the radio off to hear it, but it's there).
This noise is only there until I have braked 2 or 3 times then it goes away until I start my next journey. It's as if it only occurs when brakes are cold
Braking does not seem to have deteriorated at all.
It is booked into local dealer on Tuesday.
Wondering where I stand?
Warranty or not, if not how much could it be?
Guy in garage said 7000 miles is too low for new pads and it should be front ones first not rear in theory
Any advice much appreciated.
