New brake pads already???

Just reached $23,000 klms and received a warning message that my brake pads are low. Does this seem right? Also drove on a gravel road, thinking it could be related. Apparently brake pads should last 25-70,000 miles, where I have 23,000 klms. Any thoughts?

Yep, tell the wife and kids to lay off the brakes or move from a village to a country home!

My wife's 16 GLE63S suv needed new rear pads and rotors at 15,000 miles. The fronts are still good at 20,000 miles.

I don't quite understand this. Maybe it is traction / stability control wearing out the rears first.

I had the rear brake pads replaced and the mechanic explain that active lane assist affects the brake pads and when in traffic the rear brakes work harder so they are the first to go. Hoping I donít have to change the front brake pads and rotors this year. Coming up to 1 year in October.

It's the absurd power the car makes. Every time you lean on the gas a little your traction control clamps down on the rear breaks (rear wheel biased remember?) to prevent the tires from spinning. Apparently it's a well known "issue" with these cars. My car was a year old with 13K miles on it when I bought it and the dealer had replaced the rear brakes.
