It depends on the driver, the driving conditions, and the quality of the brake pads. A ot of stop and go driving will wear them out pretty fast. If the driver has habit of resting one foot on the brake pedal or riding the brakes, they will wear out very quickly. Poor quality brake pads or shoes do not last very long.

Brake Shoe Self-Over-Tightening?

Type of brake shoes there using, the more metallic compound on the shoe will make them Squeal and just takes time for the brake shoes and drums to wear there self to a point where they will not squeal any more. The high Metallic brake shoes will last longer but make more noise, I did a break up grade on my Jimmy with ceramic brake pads and vented rotors. At first before there were broken in, stopping distance was bad and brakes was loud, but now it's like dropping an anchor LOL. Keep me posted and give it a few miles of stop and go traffic.

1999 Rav 4. Replaced the timing belt at 90,000 m. two years ago. It is now at 120,000 m. Mechanic says it needs a timing belt. I think this is to short. The belt should last 90,000 (or more) or another 4...

If all other parts were were new this would be true, however as things wear, pullys and other parts insdie the timing cover can shorten the life of the belt. If he looked and saw something and he thought it need to be changed then let him change it and ask him why. It may need a new pully to make the belt last longer. On some engines there are things that wear the belt out the older they get. Also factory belts tend to last longer than after market, some people have the cheep belt installed to save money but in the end they pay to replace the belt sooner. Hope this helps, alwasy ask you mechanic why he is doing it. If he does not give you a reason then go somewhere else.

I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 3500, 5.9 Diesel w/ high mileage. I have had the rear speed sensor replaced 2x in the last 5 years. And again the ABS + Brake light are coming on {again}. The back brakes are...

Have you had the rear diff serviced regularly? If not, this is most likely the cause. Metal builds up on the sensor, and "shorts" it out. Keeping your diff serviced every 30K should help them last longer.

7 starter`s in a year

Did the original starter have shims? It may need some. Get a delco starter and new bolts. Rebuilt non delco starters give trouble and do not last. Check flywheel teeth.

Anti-lock light comes on.

I had the same problem on my 2000 Blazer usually when I made a slow turn. I had the ABS system disconnected, you don't need it here in NY, problem solved. You won't notice any braking change except on snow and ice you'll get normal braking not the ABS back and forth. It took just a few minutes and the mechanic didn't charge me. The light will stay on but it still passes inspection. Hope this helps.
