I have a PT Cruiser and had the rotors and pads changed

Customer Question
I have a PT...

I have a PT Cruiser and had the rotors and pads changed 25000 miles ago. I just had an oil change and they informed me that there is a 1/4 inch of rust built up around the rim. The rust is uniform all around. The rest of the surface is normal. Are these pads too small for the rotor.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the brakes? How many miles on the car?

They were changed 3 1/2 years ago.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your PT Cruiser?

2006

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

I have owned this car since 2006 and have regular maintenance done on it. I have also kept all the receipts so I know when everything was done.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
