Service department is recommending brake service at 20,000kms / 12500 miles. Looking for confirmation on the best time for this service.

Thanks

That seems like an awfully short service interval. How much meat is left on your brake pads?

that's probably just an inspection of the pads. pads and rotors should last 50k +. It's one of the things I look at every time I rotate the tires, about every 8k

Service includes an inspection and lubrication of pins I'm told. I've elected to hold off until the 32,000km mark indicated into manual.

I replaced my pads at 14000 miles, but only because I wanted to replace the OEM Ceramic with Semi-metallic. Both the rotor and the OEM pad had virtually no wear. The pins were just fine. Perhaps if you're offroad in mud often, I could see checking more often.

Just replaced the pads and rotors on my DD after 100,000 miles. I can tell you that was too long...lol. Pads actually had some meat left on them, it was the rotors that were completely shot.

Pins are very easy to lubricate though if you are a DIY'r.
