Maintenance Plan Purchase Option for Brakes/Pads/Rotors

Hi everyone,

The dealership I picked up my new car from is offering a discount on the Maintenance Plan for Brakes (and pads and rotors). They indicated that when pads are changed, they change the rotors as well to ensure optimal life in sync. They said the typical pad and rotor change is about $1,500, and the maintenance plan is offered at $1,250, which they were able to bring down to $1,000. Value-wise, it seems worth it, but for a 3-year lease at 10K/yr, would I without-a-doubt need at least one visit to service the brakes?

In my current F15 (waiting for my G05) I'm at 74k+ miles and had not needed new rotors or pads. If you're only going to put on 30k max I would say not worth it for a lease. I doubt the G05 rips through brakes that much faster but perhaps someone else could chime in.

Unless you are ride the brakes a lot, you should not need new brakes in 30k miles. That being said, with your location of NY, NY, if you will be doing mainly stop and go city driving, they will wear down sooner. I'm upstate and I've gone 90k with just a front pad change.
