2015 Brake longevity and DIY pad replacement

Postby burrpenick » Sat May 09, 2020 11:58 am

I've got 42K miles on my 2015 Rogue, no issues yet, when can I expect to replace the pads, and do the front or rears wear out first on this vehicle. I know, usually the fronts, but my 2006 Mustangs rear discs wore first, so I was thinking maybe 4 wheel disk vehicles are different than the older rear drum cars?

And, what pads w/be suggested for replacement- not a racer here, just a long lasting fade free, reasonably priced pad. Any tricks to replacing these myself?

About 38k on the front and 79k on the rear. I’ve come to like a Bosch quietcast rotor and akebono pad combination available at rock auto. I stay as far away from the junk chinese crap as I can. Bosch is usually made in Europe and akebono is made in the USA.

Remove the front wheels to get a good look at your brake pads to see how much brake pad material is remaining. If there is less than 3 or 4 mm of material remaining you should change them.

Here are a few brake pad replacement videos for the Rogue you can take a look at.

I try not to let my brakes get to the point of making noise. I take the tires off occasionally or at least twice a year to see what’s going on. I caught them before they started grinding.

When inspecting keep in mind the inside pad typically wears faster.

My oem brakes looked practically new after a decade. I know I changed 1 pair early on because of noise at the dealer but I had so much material left like they were not used after 95k miles.

Only reason I changed them because my breaks were sticking. I just bought Nissan advantage ones so I threw them my old ones away reluctantly.

Not a heavy braker, but now I’m not too concern of being so light footed on my brakes. Bought new rotors too.

I never maintained brakes ever until recently. Yup YouTube.

We've got 59,000 miles on our OEM brakes on our 2015. About 50/50 HWY/City.
Still have decent amount of pad left. I'm not expecting to need to do them for at least 2 more years. YMMV.

Good to hear from everyone- seems like the pads wear very well on these Rogues. Since mine is at 43K, I plan to pull a wheel and look, but hoping I can let it wear down to say maybe 1/8" showing on the outside pad- or IF the indicator starts making noise.
