Re: 2005 Five Hundred rear brake failure???
What exactly failed??? Did they wear out??? You don't seem to have allot of miles on it for a 2005. At that mileage, I have seen from lack of use rust builds up on the rotors and causes pitting on the braking surfaces. This can lead to accelerated wear, brake noise, and sometimes pulsations. If you live right by the ocean (or large bodies of salt water) it's even worse.
EDIT- Found a TSB for 500's - TSB 07-5-9 deals with... drumroll please... rear brake drag from being parked an extended period of time. Covered if still under warranty
TSBs are generally covered anyway. I've taken in vehicles outside of warranty and it hasn't cost me a dime. Mind you, I get letters from the appropriate manufacturer in the mail to bring the said vehicle in. Only one that I've been notified about were safety related (seat belt spring in the Taurus)
