Break pad failure after 850 miles
2021 Hyundai i10 1.2 Auto Premium

New car bought in July 2021. 850 miles later both front brake pads failed while the vehicle was moving, with passenger side pad ripping away from the brake disc. Paid over £300 for repair, as garage said brakes are outside warranty (wear & tear), despite the car being only a few months old.

For the brakes to fail at such a low mileage with no mechanical defects is exceptional . I have had it occasionally with automatics and was caused by the driver riding the brake pedal and thereby warranty claim was rejected as wear and tear ,

Thanks for the reply.
I should have mentioned the brakes have been over stiff since buying the car, I thought this was normal as I've never had a car from new before, and they'd wear down over time.
I try not to ride the break and give plenty of stopping time and use the hand break when stationary. One reason they gave was excessive weathering, but I haven't been able to clarify what this means - any ideas?
