After purchasing my 2017 XC90 T6 Momentum, I found my way to this forum And a wealth of helpful information from many of you folks. I admit, I was frightened and saddened to read so many stories of premature brake maintenance, concerned about the expenditures in my future. Consequently, I was happy to make it to my 30K mile service before having to replace my rear brake pads and even happier to have the tech tell me my front pads would probably make it to 50k!! Well, imagine my disbelief today when I went for my 50k Mile service to have the tech tell me the front pads have another 10k miles left in them, my rears aren’t even halfway down, and all my rotors are in top condition!!
I’m not sure why my experience has been so positive when so many here have had negative ones, but you don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. I figured I would share my experience here to give other new owners a shred of hope..
Now if only the Pirelli Scorpion Verdes I put on at 32K miles had lasted more than 18K miles 😢
