We have a 2008 Volvo XC70 with electronic parking brake. We have had to replace the rear brake pads at less than 37,000 miles. The front pads are fine. You have to connect a small computer to move the calipers back to get the pads out. I have been told the front pads are normally the first pads to go. My question is, can this electronic system be set to tight or causing early wear of the rear pads? The dearler tech said they see more rear brake pad wear with these electronic parking brake systems, than without the electronic parking brakes.
I feel 37,000 miles is too early to have rear brake pads wear out versus the front pads. Any feedbak regarding this would be greatly appreciated.
I do understand individual driving will make a difference however I would expect the front brakes to wear out first if that were the case.
