don't drive if you spend winters driving to ski country

ReviewCar has some great features but expect problems with front brake rotors.
I was hoping Audi would correct brakes and after problems with my 2005 allroad I switched to a Mercedes 300 series. After 52,000 miles I traded in on original brakes. Now my A-6 2010 again has warped rotors after 17,800 miles. Pads only about 40% worn or less. This was same problem in allroad. It just cost me 600 dollars after 15% dealer discount - a true joke. I usually use engine during down hills and am carefull not to heat brakes. I think that it may be slush or cold rain that cold shocks the rotors. When audi covered these under warranty I did not mind, they stopped this in 2005 probably due to frequency - so $$$
Best Featuresgood econony- acceleration - generally a great car except for brakes. Next time I will go back to a mercedes, BMW or Volvo for ski country - even my Checy Suburban went 70k miles on original brakes.
Worst FeaturesBeaf up rotors or bring back brake warranty 5/50K
