How long are/did your stock brakes last/lasting?

I'm creeping up on 70k miles and never changed my brakes. Anybody else still rocking the stockers and for how many miles?

I got mine replaced at 85,000 because it seemed like the car wasn't braking as good. I made a big mistake taking it to Just Brakes. They said I needed new wheel cylinders and that the back brakes weren't working at all. They charged my $410 for new brakes. I had to go back 4 times, because they didn't bleed the brake fluid correctly. The brakes squealed right away, the original brakes never did that. Now at 110,000 miles there is a rattling noise coming from the back brakes.

Has anybody worn them down to nothing ? I'm just curious to see how long they really have been stretched for use. I still have a good 1/4" of pad, the car doesn't stop as good of course and I'll be looking to upgrade in the near future.

Midas told me the rear shoes should out last the front pads 2-1 sometimes 3-1. Meaning by your second or third front pad change you should change your rear shoes.

I got 80,000 miles on the car, changed the front brakes about 60,000, and the rears look almost new at 80,000 when I inspected them. I dont expect to change the rear until 200,000 miles.

changed front pads at 20k when they were at unsafe level according to trusted mechanic, now new ones are still on and im at 50k. but i try not to brake unless im 40mph or slower to prevent warpage.

I just changed the brakes myself at 70,000. It is really easy to do, I also put on new rotors.

I just replaced mine yesterday, at 38k. It was kind of making that squeak/grind noise. The mechanic said that the pads were not that bad, but id rather be safe than sorry.

I changed the fronts at 80k, rears at 100k (probably coulda gone longer). Brake longevity depends on whether you drive more highway vs back roads, who your braking habits are, and whether you downshift a lot. It also depends if your a girl or not. My wife wears out her brakes in half the time I do.

at 57000 now, stock all around. Still good, but will probably have the fronts changed at the 60000 mark. Stopping with 18s is deffiently more work than on the 15s.

i'm coming up on 37000m, still appears to be at least 50% pad left on the front, probably more. I've never seen new civic pads in person tho, so I don't really have anything to compare to. I'm gong to do new pads/rotors in the spring when I put the summer wheels back on. I should have to about 45k on the car by then. I didn't know the rear shoes lasted as long as people have been saying they do. The initial plan was to leave the drums, but replace the shoes when I did the front. Now, I may just have them looked at and leave them alone. I'll do the front myself, but I don't do drum brakes.
