I have just over 73,000 miles on my 1999 CR-V EX 5 speed manual transmission. I've never had any work done on my brakes.

During the 60,000 mile inspection 18 months ago the service person noted that 25% of the front pads remained, and 50% of the rear shoes. I'm planning on having the brakes done the next time it's in for service, including a brake and clutch fluid change, and probably a coolant change, too.

The brakes on a CR-V with an automatic transmission probably wouldn't last as long. I use the engine and gears to slow the CR-V when I can, and only use the brakes when necessary.

Yeah I had to change my pad at 62k miles. Im now at 77k miles. I was planning to purchase bremo slotted rotors, EBC green pads and (replace drum/caliper or paint them) in the future. Reason why I wanted to know how long they last.

Replace drum/caliper or paint them???

Paint. Much cheaper, even if at some point in the future you might have to replace the drums. I doubt you'd need to ever replace the calipers, as they can be "rebuilt" if necessary.

id say at least 100k. it also depends on your braking. do brake hard alot? just keep an eye on the pads and check the rotors.

Absolutely depends on driving conditions and operator usage. If you drive like a nut case expect a short life span. If you drive carefully, anywhere from 60k to over a 100k (miles). I changed my '98's at 80k. I just purchased it and the front pads were a bit iffy. It was mostly precautionary because it's the wife's car and I don't want her driving the kids around on less than desirable brakes. I get the stuff cheap and do my own work, so no sweat for me.

I sell parts and I am already selling front and rear pads and rotors for 2nd gens. I try to quiz the tech on the milage of the vehicle each time and I'm surprised at the low miles sometimes. Yesterday I sold rear pads and rotors for an '03 with 31k on it. Rear brakes were "smoked" to quote the tech. So........ya wanna play? Ya gotta pay!!

Had 20% remaining on front pads at 60k mile service. Had them replaced at 75k, along with getting the discs turned (just to get a fresh surface for the new pads to bite into).

This is on a 2000 EX 5-speed. An automatic will need the brakes serviced sooner, as they get used more often (no compression braking in an automatic).

Okay...drums and caliper will paint as early next year as soon as the snow dies down. Rotors...how long did they last on your vehicle?
