2012 Tesla Model S Needs $8500 Brake Repairhttp://gas2.org/2016/05/21/2012-tesla-model-s-needs-8500-brake-repair/
"The customer was told that all 4 brake pistons had seized due to a combination of several factors. First, with regenerative braking being normal on an electric car like the Tesla, the mechanical brakes don’t get used nearly as much as they do in a conventional car. The service adviser suggested he treat the car to several hard brake applications each week to keep the braking system in good working order."
Sounds a little like what I was told by a Nissan service center with the rear brakes in my previous Nissan Maxima. I was once told to apply hard braking more often. I tend to drive relatively slow in town/city streets and since it was a standard transmission, I did not have to apply the brake much which happens to be my style anyway. Two of my children have remarked at how slowly I drive (I evidently have more patience that they have). OTOH, I do everything I can to keep from going over 140 km/hr on the 401. When I switched to a private mechanic as opposed to the Nissan authorized service centers, my mechanic told me rear disc brakes should never have happened - rear drum brakes are still better in the opinon of my mechanic.
