    Default Rear pads info req

    Im just back from Arnold Clark after a service (26002 miles) they pointed out my rear pads are 99% worn, my car is 57 plate 1.9 cdti design(150) ... of all the vectra's I've had I have never had rear pads go at 26K ..
    2 options here, either pads are faulty or car was clocked when I bought it last year with 13K on the clock .... anybody else have rear pads go so quick.

    How much are Arnold Shark charging you for changing them? Hope you dont mind me asking. I got an advisory on my MOT for mine, tester said they were legal but would need replacing very soon so told him just to do it. Only charged me £95 for MOT and rear pads.
