About 3 months ago my brake shoes and pads were replaced. Yesterday, after they started making an awful noise, I had them inspected by Mr. Madame. (they one who replaced them)
He said they needed to be replaced again and the only way they could wear to the point they were now in is because I MUST be riding the brakes. He said even the slightest pressure from me, so long as it is constant, produces this degree of wear this quickly.
Is this true? I am positive I do not “ride the brakes” as much as he insists. Also, I have had the car for almost three years now so did I only begin this crazy brake habit in the last three months? What else could be causing the friction, because even as i begin to accelerate, and there is no pressure what-so-ever on the brakes, I can hear something creating friction.
