New Espace - just done 1,000 miles. End of journey both rear disks are about 60 degrees centigrade - very hand hot. Fronts are cool. Electric handbrake obviously binding. Something to be concerned about - or will in "wear in" to the point that the binding stops?

Yes I agree with Chris if you are still covered by warranty get right back to the Dealer a number of things can be affecting this, It is not good for your fuel consumption or wear a tear on your rear discs etc.

Also your rear brakes are only used about 20% compared to fronts and only under heavey load or hard braking.
