Why do my rear brake pads wear out so fast?

(2012 Jeep Liberty)
in Kent, OH on February 22, 2017
89000 miles. Original front brakes and I'm about to install my 5th set of rear brakes! Calipers are working properly according to mechanics.

I do have a few newer Wranglers that seem to need rear brakes before front, but not that often! If your current mechanics think the calipers are working properly, i would look into the type/brands of pads being used and the type/finish on rotors. Contact us if you want a second opinion.
