Why would the inner pads on the rear disk brakes of a 1993 Saturn S1 wear out and score the rotors 5000 miles after the pads and rotors were replaced?

Check to see if the brake caliper pins are stuck or stiff. Also, if the park brake is part of the caliper assambly it may be stuck. I've seen this on rear disk Grand Prixs and Luminas.

Check tie rod ends, inner tie rod bushings, and balljoints. Also, SOMETIMES new rotors may need to be resurfaced. Usually replacing brake pads alone will not help.

Remove wheels Remove 2 caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotors Rotors should slide off hub Fully retract piston into caliper body using a "C" clamp Replace inner and outer brake pads Re-Install rotors Slide caliper on rotors and re-secure REMEMBER TO PUMP BRAKES TO SET PADS AGAINST ROTORS PRIOR TO MOVING VEHICLE Remove wheels Remove 2 caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotors Rotors should slide off hub Fully retract piston into caliper body using a "C" clamp Replace inner and outer brake pads Re-Install rotors Slide caliper on rotors and re-secure REMEMBER TO PUMP BRAKES TO SET PADS AGAINST ROTORS PRIOR TO MOVING VEHICLE Remove wheels Remove 2 caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotors Rotors should slide off hub Fully retract piston into caliper body using a "C" clamp Replace inner and outer brake pads Re-Install rotors Slide caliper on rotors and re-secure REMEMBER TO PUMP BRAKES TO SET PADS AGAINST ROTORS PRIOR TO MOVING VEHICLE

Tires,inner tie rod bushings, if the steering wheel shakes when brakes are applied - brake rotors warped.

Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune is not inner planets. They are all outer planets.
