I have a '06 Freestyle AWD (26K miles) and took my vehicle in for an oil change and tire rotation. The mechanic noted that the is severe and uneven wear on the rear brake pads. He asked if I accidently did not take off my parking brake, which I never use. I called the dealer and the service technician said that brakes are considered "normal" wear on the car and are not covered, which I understand if I didn't only have 26k miles on it. Has anyone else had problems??? -- Thanks.
