Pads & fluid  
Just got the call from my mechanic. Pads just about gone and contaminated fluid. Cost to me will be $150. Could have been worse as discs are expensive. Can't imagine how the fluid got contaminated or how the rear pads wore faster than the front (they both were replaced 7k miles ago)

Thanks for the tip :-) I'll have to remember to ask my mechanic how much just flushing the fluid is. With a good light, I can see how thin the pads are getting

Flushing the fluid is pretty easy going forward; your owner's manual should have good instructions. :-)

Thanks for the tip! Owner's manual didn't come with it, I got it used, but that info should be easy to find. Seems like a fluid flush should be easy to do
