    It could be different pad materials? It has been years since I had to worry about pads on cars, but there are some that are dusty and eat rotors, some that are low dust and eat rotors, some that are dusty and eat don't eat rotors, and the holy grail of low dust and not rotor eating. One of our past cars had the dusty / hungry type from the factory. The Taco seems to have the holy grail from the factory. If I was going for pads, I would go with the factory ones and not risk the rotors or have the dust.

    Toyota is doing something right with the pads. No squeaks, almost dust free and incredible longevity.

    I bought new pads for my '15 Camry @ 95K miles knowing with they're time had to be coming up.
    Got all my shit together, pulled the driver's wheel and caliper off without even inspecting, only to find I was still sitting with even wear and 2/3 left on the pads.
    Buttoned everything back up and threw the pads on a shelf. Found it worthy of note to mention to my brother at a later date who informed me he had experienced the same with his Tundra @ 120K..

    And, we won't even mention the rear pads with the measly 4mm of material that pretty much last forever.


    Our Forester seems to be similar also, but the pads are getting close at about 65k.

    the Toyota 04465-az100 are ceramic pads and come without new shims, your better off getting the ADVICS AD0976 pads from ROCKAUTO they are the same pads that Toyota sell as az100, the advics come with shims, these are what im getting for my truck.
