Hi:

2017 Midnight edition. Went in for state inspection and was informed the pads will need replacing in 3-4 months. Which is a bit odd to me as the car only has 29,600mi. They said that the back pads are wearing more than the front. Any idea why this is? Thanks.

My 2014 Altima went through rear pads before front pads. We live in the burbs with minimal stop and go, also a number of multi-day road trips. I replaced the rear pads at around 70,000 miles, the fronts at around 85,000. The original rotors remain in-use. Just a pad change and brake system flush and all is well at 91,000 miles.

When changing pads, there was still some pad remaining. I just didn't want to risk damage to the rotors.

For my 2015, the rear pads went out at 78,000 miles. All fours brakes were serviced and lubed at this point.

Currently, I am at 117,000 miles and the car still has original front pads.

They still have 3-4mm (1/8 inch) of material left so I think they should be good until 125K with my driving style.

70,000? 85,000 on brake pads? I'm just shy of 30,000 and need new pads and I brake lightly. Sheesh.
