If the rear brakes wear out abnormally fast, this can be caused by defective rear brake pads. The rear wheels may also appear to become excessively dusty. They should be replaced with revised brake pads, and all wheel drive (AWD) vehicles should replace front brake pads as well.

  • Rear Brakes seem to wear abnormally fast. I coast a lot and don't use the brakes hard but they still seem to wear prematurly.
