I remember reading a while back that there were some people that had some problems with their rear brake pads being almost completely worn out after 30,000 miles or less. I'm curious to find out if the people who had premature brake pad wear had automatics or manuals. I have a 2005 manual with almost 46,000 miles on it. My brakes have been squeaking for a while, so I checked them all last night. There was still roughyl 5/6 of the pad left! I guess I have to wait a little while longer to put on the new pads I ordered.
