10K + 3 K = 13K still does not justify life of Brake Pads. Your car is 2012, I guess. 2011-12 cars are supposed to be with lesser issues than earlier cars. These are the newly designed Brake Pads we are discussing which are supposed to be an improvement over earlier ones. Where is the improvement if still customers have to change it at every 15 K or even every 30K kms? Kiran, Problem is if we prolong the brake pads usage, it eats into Brake Disc and ultimately you need to change both. I was advised to change brake pads at 18K or 20K kms. I didn't pay heed to it but then I ended up changing Brake Pads & Brake Discs both at 30K kms and then both again at 60K kms. I guess yours is also 2011-12 car. How much kms on ODO ?
