Too good to be true - Brakes
So I bought a 2008 SRX with 29,000 miles. Drove it seemed fine, bought it. Noticed it had new rotors and pads. Hmmmm.... After 2000 more miles the RR caliper locked up, tremendous vibration. I think that it sat for so long the the brakes rusted and the caliper was ready to seize. Hope the others stay OK.

Careful of the parts you buy, I asked the local parts store for 'delco or better' quality. The 'premium' parts they gave me looked rusted within a week of driving. (Car quest)
