problem #1

Town & Country

  • Automatic transmission

Outside brake disc pads prematurely worn, inside pads virtually untouched. Replaced all pads, one disc, and turned other disc. The actual problem is caused by extremely poorly designed calipers. Outside pad in constant contact with disk. Releasing brake pedal does not remove pad away from disk. This specific problem is not caused by a malfunctioning part, as far as I can see. The entire caliper design appears to be flawed.
