    I have a 2015 here at work that sounds similar. I changed the front pads about a month ago with some wagner qs. Shortly after the driver was complaining of a noise from the front right that stopped when he touched the brakes. Everything looked fine, I sprayed the rotors with brake quiet, it was good for a few days then the noise came back. It only seemed to do it when it was warm, I pulled the pads off and cleaned everything, re lubed it everything, sprayed brake quiet stuff on the rotors. It was good for another week. Yesterday the same noise came back. This morning I swapped the rotors and pads from one of the parts cars we have and so far so good. I haven't had a problem with these pads before, the rotors looked okay but I changed them cause I had extras anyways and didn't want to see this car come back again for the same problem.

    I did my brakes once at 31,000 miles, and again at about 58,000 miles...86,000km = 53,000mi. The brakes were made bigger for 2016/2017 and the pad material was also changed to help with this problem.
    Would you recommend changing the brake pads every 20k or 30k miles?

    I'd recommend changing them when they get worn down to 25-30 % for customers. I'll sometimes let them go further on my own stuff cause I like throwing money away when the rotors get chewed up.
    We've had lots of mirage's get over 60000miles on front pads then others barely get 30k miles. I changed a set the other day that had 86000miles. They were totally worn down but didn't destroy the rotors yet. Depends on how you drive, check them out. Both inner and outer pads.

    See I have no idea how I am on my brakes. I like to feel like I dont ride them, then again I nevered was taught proper braking style.

    If in doubt pull the wheel, take a picture and post it. You'll get an answer here. I've seen shops tell people they need new brakes at 50%. Stupid me told the people they don't need them yet. I shoulda said yeah, everything the dealer tells you is right and I'll do all the work for 1/2 what they charge, coulda made and easy $1000 in labour last month replacing brakes and 2 struts in a vensa

    But you didnt because your a good dude Fummy. Its like an episode from an 80s sitcom where there like a cantankerous mean ole bastrd in the plot, but then it turns out he has a heart of gold lol. Like Mr. Belvedere or Silver Spoons. Did yall get those shows up in Canada back in the 80s or was it just Kids in the Hall reruns?

    Get a set of those colored brake guages on eBay for under $5 and you will know EXACTLY how much life remains on the pads.
