SL 4-cyl

  • 15,000 miles
The brakes on my 2002 SL1 Saturn had to be replaced at 15,000 mi; now, at 30,000 mi, the Saturn dealership is telling me they need to be replaced again. I previously had a 1991 Saturn SL1, for 11 years and with more than 100,000 mi, and did not have any problems with the brakes, so it's not my style of driving - it's apparently the equipment on the car itself (and the replacement parts as well.)
