Volvo XC60 rear discs and pad replacement
It’s common to have to replace discs and pads much earlier than it once was, particularly on European cars. If you think about it, the braking performance on cars today is much, much higher than it was on cars even a decade ago, and that performance comes from the size of the brakes and the materials used in the pads and discs. Discs are usually changed because they have worn down to a thickness that affects their performance. Instead of replacement they can sometimes be machined to extend their life. They’re not necessarily changed at the same time, but if they are close to being worn out and in need of replacement it might be more cost-effective to do it with the pads rather than have to come back later for the replacement.
