Brake disc wear?

Post by kriswilson » Wed May 15, 2019 1:41 pm

Anyone else had unusually quick brake wear? My October 2017 car just had its first service and I’ve been advised that it needs new discs and pads all round due to corrosion/pitting.

Pads fine but discs? Already? It’s a £60k car...

There have been similar posts on the Disco Sport forum for a while now about this sort of thing, what sort of mileage have you done?

Had the same issue and all discs and pads replaced under warranty with 6,000 miles on clock. The car has probably been lying in a compound for months before being sold which would explain corrosion

Just clicked 20k miles.

Think I’ll get back in touch with the dealer and advise I’m not happy with the fact it’s need discs already

Land Rover dealerships notorious for over selling discs

Surely a warranty claim if they are pitted.

I was slightly concerned that my rear discs seem to be wearing far quicker than my front, although with all the other niggles and issues the discs are far from top of the list.

If it's anything like Discovery Sport, the brake components are made out of chocolate. In 4 years my DS was onto it's 3rd set of rear disks/pads and it's 2nd set of fronts, in 44k miles no less... I had mine done by my local non-LR garage who wouldn't have changed the disks if they didn't need to.
To show the way I drive... my BMW Z4M is on it's original rear brakes and 2nd set of front pads in 11 years and 54k miles!

Hi, my Velar has pitted front inner discs that my mechanic says need replacing. It's done 25k miles. Is it a warranty issue?
