Any idea how/what would happen if I ask for my brakes to be checked just prior to the 36K mile limit of the free maintence program?

if these are original pads you would likely score a replacement.

The pads have been replaced. The rotors were .5 mm within tolerance, and were not replaced at the 30K mile service 1 which was done three weeks ago.

So, if I still have 6K miles left on my free maintence, I'm thinking I'll be able to bring the car in, have the front rotors inspected and more than likely replaced. Thing is, since 36K is not a set interval for inspection, I think I have to pay for the cost of the inspection, no? But the cost of the inspection would more than be offset by the replacement of the rotors.

Thoughts?

They shouldn't charge you. Tell them the brakes squeek or something.
