Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. Its hard to say when everyone drives different and has different traffic conditions and terrain on what brake pad life is, some people need them at 15k and some at 100k, if you can send pictures of the pads I can tell you for sure or not what it needs
