I have a envoy slr. When I reverse there is a squealing coming from the rear. It only happens when the vehicle is cold.
I started smelling a strong chemical odor in my car. Took it to my mechanic and he said that the air conditioning evaporator was leaking and needed to be replaced.

The rear brake pads on my Subaru Forester only had 2/32" left on them and have to be changed. Fronts are OK. What would make the rear wear so much faster than the front? I thought the opposite was true? Do I have to change rotors whenever I change brake pads if no damage is evident? Thanks
