Rear Brakes Wear Out Abnormally Fast on Mercury Montego

Problem Description and Possible Solution

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.

How can this happen, they said that Ford brake pads too hard.
I bought this car 6 yrs. ago with 21,000 miles on it. I just had to replace the rear brake calipers for the third time. I don't have to drive in much stop and go traffic, there's only two traffic lights in my county.
