:rofl: at this "The one that releases the gas pedal (no brakes) a mile before a red light will save on gas, tires and brake pads" Not really if you live in a metro area. People will cut you off or jump immediate in front of you, and then you have to brake aggressively to avoid an accident.Probably there's no average. Some people really don't step on brakes... not even around fast corners lol... they just wear out the tires instead of brakes! The ones that step on the brakes often (unnecessarily, safe driver, or just way too cautious) .... well i suppose the brakes on these will have a shorter life. The one that releases the gas pedal (no brakes) a mile before a red light will save on gas, tires and brake pads.
Just did front pads and rotors right before 60k. There was still some meat on the pads and rotors that came off but they would pulsate when hot like on a long downhill grade. I believe this was the third set of pads.What is average life of the pads and rotors. When my indicator light came on, I went to the dealer and they said I had plenty of pad and reset the computer for another 25000 miles. I have a 35d @nd am at 65000 miles.
I also drive approximately 60/40. I replaced my rear pads at 87,700 miles. I'm still on my original front pads at 93,000 miles. I probably have about 5,000 miles left on the fronts.I do about 60% freeway and 40% local. Fairly conservative driver. I have an extended warranty
