How long should the pad and discs last?

I run a Megane Grand Scenic 2.0VVT Auto.

36,000 miles and both front and rear axle need replacing.

Unbelievable (and so is the price)

A lot will also depend on your driving/braking style as well. 36k for pads doesn't seem to bad. With modern pads/disc materials these days discs do not last a s long as they used to.
It may be worth geting a second opinion on the brakes. Was it your dealer who told you they needed changing? If you go along to a "kw*k F*t" type place they will do a free brake check.

36,000 is pretty good for a set of front discs and pads,although I would have expected the rears to last a bit longer.It depends how much weight you usually carry.

Has this been noticed as part of a service?.
The dealer has to make sure that the brakes will last to the next one,but because the intervals are so long you will probably find that there is still quite a bit of wear left in them.

How much have you been quoted?(Renault Main Dealer I guess)

If you use genuine parts,any Vat registered garage can carry out the repairs,and it won't affect the warranty.and I suspect the labour charge would be half as much as a main dealer......

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Thumbs down Worn Discs

Just had my laguna 01 sport tourer serviced and have been told that the front discs are on the limit and the back pads are 90% worn and the discs are too.The car has done 52000miles with full service history and this was only its 3rd service from new .Does this sound fair......I would have thought the rear discs should have lasted a bit longer than the fronts?
