Now at 4,000km the sensors read 18,000km. The rears are wearing much faster than the fronts which is a first for me in any car I have owned. I guess time will tell.
Its not the sensors that do that. The sensors only alert you when the wear gets to the point of needing new pads period. The idrive mileage estimate is just that and as I said before often inaccurate
