    OK, so last week I took the taco to the 30,000km service (@ 25310km and 8 mo from the last one) on the service report the technician wrote that my front brake pads have 30% life left, and the back 70%, i am starting to hear an iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii sound :p when I brake, at what mileage are you guys changing your pads, did i wore them out too fast??

    Im thinking of changing these myself, but i dont know if its too difficult, and worried that i might void my warranty, but since they are not covered by warranty i dont know....

    also, the guys on the shop adjusted my tires to 35 psi, while the sticker on the door states 31psi, so wtf??

    It depends on driving style. If someone is hard on the brakes, or mostly city driving, they will need to be changed sooner.

    FWIW, I get about 60K miles out of mine.
