- 2016 Regal T
I took my 2016 Regal T for new brake pads and rotors to a local shop yesterday. Mileage is 29,200 - at the end of the day I was told I would have to check with the dealer for pads as none of locals (Autozone, O'Reilly, Advance, NAPA) has them. They are Brembos and what I am told is VIN with the last 7 digits under 9110000 (my VIN meets this criteria) have an early design bracket and the pads need to be ordered through the dealer, specific to the VIN. This scares the hell out of me, sounds like $$$$. Looking to see if anyone else out there has run into this? This all came to light yesterday. I will check with the dealer Wednesday but am hopeful of other options if I don't like what they say. Further that, I cannot believe I may own a vehicle where a basically simple maintenance item is such a problem. Hopefully someone on this forum can get my blood pressure back down with some calming advice.
