    Vectra's eat rear pads mate, Mine have been recently replaced after doing just 13000 miles, but i am quite hard on brakes...

    The rears are not up to the job, so work overtime in normal operation, let alone when you're in a hurry...

    Mine lasted about 75K on the rears. The fronts now need doing at 80K.

    So, it seems there is a huge difference in usage

    Alex had this problem I think. Are your fronts OME and the rears the VX cheaper ones by any chance?

    All my pads lasted until 47k, now close to 65K and the discs are looking a bit sad.

    My factory set lasted until around the 40k IIRC, but the next set of rears only lasted about 14k. I did however buy the cheaper disc and pad set that Vx do, so that may have been a factor.

    My advice don't go cheap on your pads.
