I’m the original owner of a 2005 Toyota Camry SE 4cyl, currently with 74k miles. I’ve noticed the rear brake pads are wearing out twice as fast as the front. My most recent brake inspection at the dealership (6-5-14) showed the rear pads at 3mm and the fronts at 7mm. Neither the front or back pads have been replaced before.
Is this normal? I always thought the front brakes did most of the work and would wear out first; this has been my experience with previous vehicles.
The dealership doesn’t seem concerned about this, though the service person I spoke to didn’t have an answer as to why the rears are wearing out faster.
