it was the last day for the brake warranty extension for those "crappy?" brakes i blew it off till i couldn't get it done for free by FORD. didn't seem to think it needed them but they thought so. so i got new back brakes for free after they had to put ne
rear brake pad excessive wear. turned all rotors and replace pads.
Rear pads ended up metal to metal in 18000 Mi. and when I questioned dealership about this, they acknowledged that there was a TSB for this because of wrong compound in the rear pads. They also replaced the rotors. The front brakes are very slightly worn.
After rotating tires and checking brake wear, I decided to replace the rear pads because they were getting close to their service life. I felt they wore a bit prematurely (16k miles) because the original rear brakes were replaced under a TSB at 20k miles.
The repair involved replacing the rear brake pads (because of a poor design not because of wear and tear) and resurfacing the rotors (because of the poor pads). This procedure is outlined in a Ford service bulletin
