Question about 2006 Pontiac Vibe
I know this is an old post, but thought I'd post my "shade tree mechanic" opinion. First, the manufacturer's estimate for brake life doesn't change with age. So, as the car gets older, the other parts of the brake system might cause the pads to wear out faster.
Typically, the rear brakes do very little work and usually only need to be replaced half as often. If there was an underlying issue that was not dealt with when the brakes were replaced 17,000 miles ago, then they will wear out much faster.

I own a 2006 Pontiac Vibe and I had the front and rear brakes replaced in 2007. Since that time I have put 17,000 miles on the car. The dealer says that I need to completely replace the rear brakes. This doesn't seem right to me. How many miles should the brakes have. It seems like it is too soon to be replacing them.
