we got a 2014 crosstrek with 70 K Km, I asked the mechanic to check on the brakes because it was squeeking and such. He said the pads life is still 50% and no need to replace.
He said that he can service the brakes/rotors, but recommends just outright replacing it instead when the time comes. I have a feeling he may have said this because he doesn't want to perform the labour
Would you guys service the brakes? I have attached some pictures. only the rear passenger rotor feels uneven when I touch the edge.
P.S. what does servicing the brake/rotors even mean and what does it do?
So I contact another mechanic about brake service. He said:
"we will remove excess rust, deglaze the brake pads, lubricate your sleeves and bushing."
what is the benefit of this? it sounds like it could make my brakes response faster when i press on them??
