I have 98K miles, still about 50% on the original pads.

I wonder what your fronts are at?   I am at 55k, just ordered new Energy Savers from Costco because my drivers front is starting to eat into the warning ridges.  Left front is just begining. Rears are just at the ridge.   Basically they are all marginal and no shop is going to rotate them, so I am not going to at home to pinch a few more nickles out of them.  I am happy with the stock tires wear.

 

 

I looked at my rear pads (with the wheels on and a ton of life is left), but most of the wear is on the front.  I use L and hill assist a lot and am pretty light on the brakes, so I am betting mine are still thick. 

 

 

How bout brake fluid flush?  Anyone done one or two on the Cmax?   It is as much time as miles and use for the fluid maintenance when humidity is higher I believe - the fluid being hydroscopic.
