    There is several threads on this already. I've got 47k on my original brakes. I don't tow anything either.

    That seems to be pretty low mileage to be needing a brake job. I have never had to replace the factory brakes with less than 100K miles. Then again I'm an old fart and don't ride the brakes or wait until I get on the stop sign before hitting the brakes.

    Still seems really low mileage. Did a shop tell you you needed brakes? If so they may have an ulterior motive... Like they want you to pay them $$ for the job. I would check it myself.

    That is easy to believe. I only had 36K on my 2004 Toyota Matrix when I sold it this year. 8 years old. Unless you mean the opposite and that seems to be a lot of driving for two years.

    That is a lot for a 2 year old truck. Not trying to get of topic just that it was high.

    I've seen people needing brake pads with as little as 25k miles. The newer models seem to eat them faster, possibly because of the electronic crap on them. I made it to about 65k miles before I needed pads on my 2007.

    Not to disrespect your opinion, but I'm not buying it. Not at 25K. I would be more inclined to believe someone is resting their foot on the brake pedal.

    There was a member here that needed new brakes under 30k because he drove it like a track day car.

    When I got my tires done at 55k, I inspected my brakes. I still had plenty left to take me to 110k+.

    My '06 has 141km (88,000 mi) and still at 60%+. All brakes ever do is slow you down.
