    That's interesting, I wonder why that would be? Oh, hang on, yours would be a Petrol (gasoline) right? I think they are 16k over here.

    Whatever it is, I hope you get your brake wear issues sorted out soon.

    Good luck.

    My thoughts are partly what RWD3M said, and partly to ask what the climate is like where you live? Wet? Humid? If the car is used only once a week there's a good chance of surface rust on the disks which will accelerate wear on the pads and the disks themselves. This doesn't explain why one side is worn much more than the other though.

    Nope, mine is a diesel. I have an appointment for. A second opinion at another Jag dealer, so we shall see!

    Thanks for you thoughts. Yes, Florida is humid! There tends to be a little rust on the disks, but not really a great deal. The fact that there has been no indicators, no lights, no nothing makes me think there is something wrong with the sensor that led us to this point. My appointment isn’t until the 22nd, so we will see.

I feel like if it is as bad as the dealer says then something should have warned me. I could have saved the rotor if I’d known the pads were thin.
    If your that concern why not take the car to a Brake specialist or a mechanic with a good reputation they should be able to keep your mind at ease ,plus save you a lot of dollars compared to a dealership .

    There's a reason the rears wear out quickly. Torque Vectoring. Look it up on Google.
    I had new rear pads at 16000 mile. I guess I corner too quickly.

    My thinking is that there is something wrong with the brakes that the sensors did not pick up, and that this is a warranty issue. In my mind there is no way this is normal wear. My home dealership says it is normal and the one down in Sarasota says it may not be. That’s why I’m taking it down there next Saturday. If this is considered normal wear then I will not even consider keeping the car when the lease is up in June. A real shame, because I love the car otherwise. I’ll post my findings after my trip south. Thanks for all the comments!

    Thank you for reminding me why I determined not to buy another Jaguar.
