My 2013 has 25,000 miles on it. I was curious about the experiences of people with more mileage regarding the need to replace brake pads.

If you had to replace the pads, at what mileage did that happen???

Thanks

Gotta love that regenerative braking! That's one reason I drive in B mode a lot...to save my brake pads. Kinda like thrust reversers, eh Tony?

I have 48k miles, and took a look when I rotated my tires, and the front ones were at about 50% ..
It also looks like they have wear sensors, so you should get a warning ...

i have like 75% of my pads left at about 55K miles (9mm out of 12mm thickness) (last time they were checked at the dealer).

So not worried. The car may not outlive the pads.

I am having new tires put on and the dealer just called me to tell me that I need to replace my front brake pads. They are at 2mm he says. I have a 2014 with about 55,000 miles. I tow my lawnmower to my rental properties so I guess I used them up.

They quoted me $500! I can probably do them myself so I declined.

Please tell us the real situation after you personally inspect.
Sounds like the typical over maintenance from the dealer.
