27K miles check brake pad warning light comes on and dealer says its time for new pads as well as brake rotors. I was pretty shocked about needing new rotors but without being able to measure the wear myself I had to go with dealer suggestion. I ordered the parts online which saved me over $200 from dealer cost and they didnt stock the parts anyway. Here are some photos of oem pads and rotors for refrence. The pads as you can see are shot, though I must say you do have alot of pad left once the warning light comes on, so dont panic if you cant get them replaced straight away. The rotors are worn (you can see the original surface material on edges of rotor) but I do not have a micrometor to measure the material lost, so I am not sure how much life is left in them. Its seems new auto rotors are throw away items which dont last too long on heavy weight suvs. If anyone is getting ready to relpace brake parts remember to order the brakepad sensor, its the little round part on the pad with the wire attached, the dealer forgot to put that part in original estimate. See photos.
