Before the HD update, the smaller front brakes are hit and miss. Some owners have issues, some don't. We have had no issues with the fronts on our '08 T&C, although, they were replaced once under 'goodwill' and I forget the reason why (premature wear?) but even then the brakes were working fine. The van is nearing 80K miles now. The rears are another story altogether. Replaced once by the dealer at our cost (rotors, pads, calipers). Replaced twice by me since then (rotors, pads). The root cause is a poor fit of the pad (too tight) causing the pad to drag on the rotor. This last time, I really went to town with a grinder on the pad backing plate and made sure the pad is good and loose in the caliper bracket.
