Hello All - I’m new to the forum here, I’ve 2018 discover sport and recently went for my 3’rd maintenance service at 28k miles.

technician is telling me that rear rotors are rusted and need to change both rotor and break pads, costs 850$. Question - is this normal to change in just 28k miles? And cost is reasonable?

also he said wheel alignment is needed and front tires needs to be changes. Just 28k miles only driven which needs tire change? I thought usually tires have 60k miles life. Question - 500 to change 2 tires, price seems costly again ? Any insight here please.

Lots of cars have rusty rear rotors. My Merc used to look rusty and a few high speed drives in reverse followed by hard braking cleared it up.
I would go to a local garage that specialises in brakes and get a second opinion . $850 US is high.

Same advise about the tires local tire shop, and think about changing all 4 tires . They can also check alignment.

Let us know what happens

I have a 2018 as well with similar mileage (roughly 48,000km - canadian lol) and during my last service visit they noted my brakes were in the "yellow" phase (soon to be replaced). I found that odd because I ran my last discovery sport to 72,000km and did not change the brakes at all before swapping it for the newer 2018 model. My previous brakes stayed in the "green" phase throughout ownership.

Long story short..as Bill noted, double check at an independent shop if possible.
