Don't know how worn the discs are but a new set of disc's, pads and replace the brake fluid would be a good start.

German cars are just as good/bad as anything else on the market. They have produced some shockingly bad cars recently.

 

On my motorway drive to work every day the most common car I see on the hard shoulder? German!

 

Everybody laughed when I bought a diesel Mondeo in 2002 but 9 years and 158K miles later it had seen off their Passat/A4/3 Series with its original clutch/flywheel/turbo/fuel pump and injectors.

 

All these 'Premium' German cars had clutches/flywheels/turbo & gearbox replacements.

 

Give me a Ford any day!

Your mechanic has bodged it. I would never put any radiator fix in my car as it masks other potential issues.

 

He should have stripped it and fitted a new gasket, this problem can occur even on new cars of any make not just Ford.

Check the trim round the speedo, mine started creaking after 3 months. I sprayed some dry lubricant between the trim and the binnacle and that shut it up.
