I am happy that with my driving patterns I am at about 25,000 without needing to change the brake pads (as of the end of January I am at 9/32 or .28), no squeaks either. I am planning on changing the brake fluid in 2020 at the recommended interval of 30,000 miles (probably when I have the motor oil changed).

I made 52,827 miles on my original pads. I was at the absolute recommended limit when they were changed.

If I extrapolate from that chart, it looks like my brake pads will outlive me.
