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
