Console Lights & Worn Out Brake Pads

05 March 2013 - 12:41 PM

I have a 2010 Ka Edge that has just failed its first ever MOT due to worn out brake pads.


I have only done 12000 miles pottering to work and back 5 days a week so this seems really quite ridiculous to me.

I don't think it's the way I drive as I had my old car for years with the same brakes and it passed its MOT first time every time. (an oollddd micra)

Has any one else has this problem?  Does it seem strange?


A few people have also mentioned how bad the engine sounds in the cold.  I has a loud rattle to it.  The engine noise has also dipped and picked up again repeatedly in the past while i was scraping the windows, as if it was struggling to keep going.

Evans Halshaw say they can find nothing wrong with it. 


Lastly, should all the console lights light up?  Only the dials on the right light up at the moment and the garage have said that all the lights that should light up do.

The heat and strength of the air are the ones that don't light up. 

I can't remember whether they used to or not and it seems really strange if they don't!


Thanks for your help!
