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!

I'm trying to get my local dealership to replace the brakes under warranty but the only way they'll do it is if I have a complaint about the brakes, i.e shuttering or pulling etc. Otherwise they won't do it. At my 24K (miles) check the pads were almost gone and the rotors needed replace....about $500.00.
It is not normal for a vehicle to need brakes that soon but from what I hear it is the norm for Freelanders.
I may try different brake pads.
