Audi Q5 front brakes worn down after only 11,000 miles.

Customer Question
Audi Q5 front brakes...

Audi Q5 front brakes worn down after only 11,000 miles. Sounds strange to me.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Are these the orignial brakes?

77,000 and no these aren't the original brakes. I had them replaced last year, both front and rear. The car is a 2012.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Q5 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nope. I take the car to the dealership for repairs.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that's it.
