What kind of problems, where do you live, and who's replacing the
parts with what quality?
If you live in the salt belt and use iron metallic pads, and
particularly if the vehicle is not heavily used, you WILL replace pads
and rotors regularly - rotors before the pads are worn. Use ceramic or
aramid (Kevlar) pads and the rotors will last a lot longer. Carbon
Metallics worked good for me on the Aerostar (which couldn't stop
worth crap with the factory brakes, and needed rotors about evey 13
months) On the Mystique I'm running EBS Green (Kevlar) pads with
My 1988 New Yorker (same brakes as the grand caravan) and the 1998
Neon were not hard on brakes with non-metallic pads.
I'm in the middle of the "salt belt" of Central Ontario.
