I had a lot of cars. Driven and maintained even more. Never had to replace discs on any car! Going to have to replace 2nd time discs after again only 40.000 km. Each time trip included to Italy over Austria. Requires excessive braking from normal because a Note wil not decelate enough on its engine like a regular car...! So instead wearing out braking pads you wear out the discs. Rather expensive, since you can do pads easily yourselves. Starting to dislike this Renault clone. Too high on maintenance costs against a real Japanese wear you never have to replace your clutch, shockabsorbers, or discs brakes. Talking doing 300.000 Kms on those.
