Regarding the electronic handbrake......good point there too. But how to check that it's actually releasing the pads sufficiently?

Thanks for your input.

Rubbish on the traction control explanation. 25K miles is too early without some problem: riding the brakes, improperly set from the factory, a mechanical or electrical fault, etc.

Who replaced the pads? What did the old pads look like? Were both L&R worn equally? What was the wear on the inside and outside pads? Did whomever replace the pads do any checks to ensure they are properly set after replacement?
