caliper, rotors and brakes
I have a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan. It has 38,000km. Last month I could feel lots of heat coming from the rear driver side wheel and the van wasn't driving quite right. I brought it in and was told my caliper was seized. The caliper was under warranty but they told me I also had to change my rotors and pads (which had been replaced about 8,000km prior). The rotors and pads were not under warranty and they said I had to do both sides. Is this "normal"? I kicked myself after for not asking to see my old parts. I was told the seized caliper damaged my rotor/pad and that both sides had to be done so it's not worn out in a different way. I'm just not sure if I got taken or not...I'm really not confident since I know nothing about vehicles. I had to pay for new rear brake pads and rotors and labour. I wasn't too happy about the labour since the calipers are under warranty and it doesn't seem to be that much MORE labour to change the pads and rotors while you are doing the calipers. IDK?
