Brake Pad Wear
My car had its second service on Monday at 21,000 miles. Reading through the service sheet, the front pads are 40% worn and the rears 50%. The front pads are a little more worn than expected but I'm more concerned about the rears. I've read online some 8g Civics wearing their rear pads alarmingly quickly but there isn't much about the 9g suffering from this. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, did Honda do anything?
On the 8g there was some mention of over active VSA and whilst I do enjoy cornering briskly at times, this isn't a regular thing - the front tyres (225/45/r17) are on 4mm and rears 5mm after 21k so its not been thrashed.
