To me it's strange that there wasn't a heavy accumulation of brake dust-something doesn't make sense here.
Still, I wouldn't let the dealer get away with charging him for it, that just bothers me. Most wear items are covered for a year or 12,000 miles, as long as there is no evidence of vehicle abuse, and a good set of rear tires is evidence enough of no vehicle abuse. How else they gonna prove vehicle abuse resulting in worn out rear pads? I would THINK someone at MB would be interested in this problem, but don't know how you would get there interest. Someone at the dealer should call the MB TAC about it.

nope, no rotor warpage. I know how that feels. There was A LOT of dust accumulation on both front and rear, but the rear pads had thrown the indicator lamp, not the fronts. I was dissapointed that they didn't investigate further into the matter. Who do I contact about it? What number? It bothers me that I got stiffed with the bill and I don't want to go into the dealer raising hell, I'm not like that and it's their job to know more about the car than I and their job to investigate a problem such as mine.
