2007 Ford Fusion 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 19000 miles
What is a good rule of thumb for the life of brakes?
At 16000 miles, I had to replace the rear brakes. The right side was ~90% worn and the left was ~50%. Had both replaced including calipers. I requested they replace the OEM clips with the metal ones. Now I'm told, at 19000 miles, that I have ~50% left on front, which I figure is normal, and ~55% left on the rear, which I figure is not normal. My thinking is that I should be able to get at least 30000 miles on a set of new brakes. Am I wrong and do you have any suggestions?
