Ok, so I have noticed the rear brakes making a bit of noise when backing out of driveway and when applying brakes in low speed travel. Not a grinding sound, just the more audible sound emanating from the rear. So, decided to put the snows on and I see my pads are about halfway worn (noticed the aftermarket rear pads too). Dealer must've popped in new pads prior to delivery. Bought the car used 2 years ago and she had about 31K miles at the time. Now, I am at 61K and I see that the rotors are begining to delaminate. I am not surprised, she is 5 years old with over 60K miles...it is about what I expected.

New rotors and pads from the local Advance Auto Parts store (buy 'em on-line, you get a 30% discount, and you can then go pick them up.) and related bits and pieces (new clips and rubber bellows for slide pins) and about 1 1/2 hours of driveway labor, total cost $105.00.

She brakes like new and while I was at it, I put a new Interstate Mega-Tron II 65 series battery in while I was "wrenching". The O.E. battery tested out as "good" but was at 74% (I dont get it either, how can it be "good" at 74%). I don't like to wait until the battery is completely dead since that is usually around January when it is -10 degrees and the rig wont start.

Snows on, back brakes done, new battery. I am ready...maybe tomorrow, I will run over to the transmission specialist and see about a flush and fill.
