Brakes wearing too quickly

undefined Hello, I have a 1999 Ford E-150 van that I use for my plumbing business. I bought it new in 99 and since that time I only get around 12,000 miles out of a set of front brakes, and almost every brake job requires new rotors because I'm told they can't be cut or resurfaced. Is this true? Are there other options to get around this issue? Every 12k for brakes is getting old. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Re: Brakes wearing too quickly

Resurfacing your rotors will depend on what type of material it is made from. Some can not be, but most new aftermarket brands can be resurfaced. If you are taking this to the ford dealer they will usually just tell you what they want you to hear that will cost you more money.

I would take your car to another shop that specializes in brakes and have them take a look at it. Just my two cents.
