Just did the front brakes at 67,000 kms. The pads were down to about 1/8 of a inch left on them. I replaced the rotors also as they were almost as cheap to replace as they were to resurface. I bought the parts online here. http://www.primechoiceautoparts.ca/ They ship parts free and for some reason I didn't pay any tax on the parts even though they are a Canadian company.
The prices were so low compared to Canadian Tire that I almost didn't buy because I thought the quality would be crap. I'll find out in a while but right now the brakes are fine and quieter than before.

Anything new should be better then 67K pads, the proof will be with time.
Good luck.

I am wondering about my rear brakes. In reverse especially overnight they really creak when touch them backing out in the morning. Little better after they warm up but why so noisy. Even testing the emergency break while move slowly it almost sound like its on steel and they should never wear anyway.

Noisy backing up is that normal on these and require a fix.

That may have to do with the caliper pins being installed wrong. There was a TSB out for that problem but with yours a 2009 I would of thought it would of been fixed as the TSB was for 2007's and 2008's. The upper pin was installed were the lower one should of been and visa versa.

IF you get the humidity as much as I do, then the noise is probably the brakes being slightly damp from sitting. I get this on my Vibe as well until they are warmed up from stopping and driving. 1/2 mile run seems to clean it up.

You wouldn't know the number for this issue would you? I might find a website which lists TSB later.
