Do you know when the last time your brake fluid was changed? At least every 2 years is a good rule of thumb. Your car is 10 years old. Contaminates could be causing your rear calipers to bind, partially release and accelerate the wear on pads and rotors. That's a really low mileage vehicle but its been in service for at least ten years. I'd change the brake and clutch fluid, go over the brake calipers clean all corrosion, brake dust and contamination from everything that slides rotates or squeezes, pay attention to the condition of all dust boots- cracked, split or missing, replace them and make sure everything works properly Use good OEM stuff - It's a lot of work, but to keep that older low mileage car up to speed, it's probably worth it.
