Hello,I will be glad to try and assist you with this,Welcome to Just Answer.
Have the front brake pads ever been replaced before on this vehicle?
Let me know,Thanks Pete.
no, unless I have forgotten the front brakes being serviced, I believe they are the original equipment. I will confirm this tomorrow after contacting the dealership where the first two years of servicing was provided.
If the front brake pads have already been replaced once then this could be the reason behind why the rear need replaced now and the front still have plenty of life left.
You are correct though,the front will usually wear out first or faster then the rear as the front are applied more then the rear or wear faster.
If the front have never been replaced then you could have an issue with a possible master cylinder concern causing pressure on the rear pads all the time(even the slightest pressure) which can cause them to wear out faster.

I've been informed that it is common on these models for the rear pads to wear faster as this is the way they have been engineered for this vehicle,Ive heard the rears can wear lout as fast as the first 15,000 miles and the fronts would still be o.k.Just a way the vehicle was designed.
If you take a look at your rotors and see a large lip on the outside edge of the rotor or if they are warped or out of spec. this is most likely why your rotors need replaced.
