Our Gearhead Speaks: Neons Eat Brakes

Follow Marty

What’s up in TheCarConnection’s garage this week? Resident gearhead Bob Weber lets you in on a little secret club racers have been bitching about for years. Neons eat brakes—and one reader’s none too pleased. “I replace one set of fronts on my ‘99 Malibu to three sets of fronts on my ‘98 Plymouth Voyager while my 2 Neons get about 12,000 miles on a set of front pads.”

Weber, always the humanitarian, ministers to the poor sap. “I’m biting my lip tongue to keep from saying ‘I told you so.’”

There’s more sympathy inside this week’s Ask a Mechanic. Well, not really.
