    Brake Work

    I own a 2012 Civic EX and have to replace the rear rotors and pads. I will be keeping the car for several years and was thinking about Midas due to the lifetime warranty on the pads. Any other suggestions on brake work?
    Thanks
    Eric

    If this is your daily driver and not very hard on the vehicle, then that is a great option. I would only suggest a more aggressive pad/rotor combo if you are an aggressive driver or have track days in mind.

    You funny, but also correct.

    But, when someone posts that they need pads and rotors, especially on the rear of a Honda Civic.
    I have to ask why?
    Rotors should be good for at least 2 or 3 sets of brake pads, unless there was some underlying problem, not stated.

    Trolls aside... I changed my rear pads before the front was due because i didn't do any brake maintenance, (shame on me!) they jammed and wore out... Then i also wore out the rear ones (EBC Red Stuff) before the front were needed. It's probably what happened here too. It's also typical on 09+ Toyota Matrix...

    seems to be an issue...as i just replaced my pads on the rear of my '14 with 58K miles. i heard the squeal. checked the pads..all seemed to be good...squeal wouldnt' go away. so i completely removed the caliper and checked. the inner pads were completely worn out - while the outer pads looked brand new still. rotors were still fine as i didn't wait to do the job. however, it appears that HONDA isn't lubricating their slide pins well enough during assembly.

    my front pads....still looked brand new when i checked them. i did this when i changed my tires over to the winter sets, but went ahead and rebuilt the calipers and pins and such.

    While we hate leaving serviceable pad material on the backing plate.
    Be happy the pad with the scraper went first and gave its obnoxious auditory warning.
    Saving you from having to machine or replace the rotors.

    yes, i was thankful that the piece of metal did it's job and saved me from having to replace the rotors. as with tires, i don't skimp out on brakes. those are the two most important parts of my car as far as i am concerned. my safety totally is based on those two items. (why i have winter tires on my car, and both my daughter's). piece of mind.
