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!

My 03 SE3 went thru the same thing at about 25K miles - but the dealer told my wife $890 for front pads & rotors!

But if you have any mechanical know how, I went to a different dealership (can't find parts anywhere else) bought new pads ($70) - the rotors would have been $180 for the pair, but since she didn't grind them and they aren't warped, I ended up not even having them turned, and did hands down one of the easiest brake jobs ever - for $70!
