Peugeot 508 brake wear

Asked by Noel Quince

I drive a 2012 508 Peugeot and at the 40,000km service was told the rear pads were down to metal and were replaced. It seems like low mileage to me when I used to get 80,000km at least out of my previous vehicles. Is this normal given it is an auto and I am not hard on brakes?

Most European cars are now heavy on brake pads as they are relatively “soft” without asbestos, but there are aftermarket replacement options that promise much better wear rates and very little dust on your wheels.
