Re: Problems with new BA XR6
I've been having the same problem with my brakes, except I have an XR8.
Mine's getting the shudders for the second time now (Had it when I purchased the car 2nd hand and got the machning done, and now 13,000 Km later.
The Ford fix for this problem is to re-machine the disks until they are outside of the prescribed tolerances (until they get too thin) and then replace the disks and start again until the warranty runs out, at which time it becomes your problem.
Opinions on the solution to this problem vary but chepest solution for a more permanent fix that I've come accross is $450 (New RDA front rotors, QFM pads).
You can upgrade to the performance package (or the equivilent of it) for around $2500, for a full PBR kit.
I'm about to get a fix but haven't decided which path to take yet (depends on tax implications).
Hope your car treats you nicely...
