Well, you SHOULD use it occasionally, or someday when you need it it won't work!

And notice the OTHER common culprit, a mechanical issue causing it to drag....

BOTH are more common than defective pads or rotors.... Not that it COULDN'T happen, I just haven't seen a case yet....

Luck!



( I always like to hear a reason for a failure, even if it's fixed under warranty...)
