Freelander Brakes so soon?

I have a 2002 Freelander and just had the 24K mile service done. I was told that I already need new brakes at a cost of about $350!! Is this normal?
I have a 1998 Nissan Maxima and 1995 Corvette that both have around 60k miles and have never needed brakes.
Also, the costs at the dealer seems outrageous!

Well i just got off the phone with my dealership...just had the 24k (that is 24 kilometers not miles) service done and they are telling me that my brakes are done as well. What is going on here. Is this not really too fast or is it about right?

And I am sort of new here...How would that be covered under warrenty? Can anyone explain that. Any help would be great.


Well I just got back from the dealership and they said 540 bucks to get my brakes done (Canadian). I am not sure I am willing to pay that much money seeing that I could just do it myself. However, I do have a couple questions. So, has anyone used those EBC brakes? Are they worth the extra money? and Does anyone know how much longer they might last just with some regular city driving? Also has anyone gone with different brakes all together? if so what kind and how are they holding up?

Any thoughs or ideas would be great. Thanks for your help.
