    Just received my Mondial yesterday. Drove it last night and today and noticed the infamous "brake grind" from the left rear. Thought, Oh great, now I get to do a brake job since the PO didn't do it ! I start to take it apart to get a inventory of what I will need. I look in the caliper and see that I have plenty of pad. Looking closer, I see the idiot, PO, mechanic, or whomever has installed the outer brake pad backwards! The metal backing plate is up against the rotor! I take it all apart, switch it around, have the rotor done and all is good again. How stupid do you have to be to not even know how to put a brake pad in? Very scary, and the first time I have ever seen this. Just had to share.
