I'm trying to have an idea, when can I expect my brakes will need attention.
I think, if we gather some info, would help everybody.
I'm assuming, that the rears will be needing attention first, right?

About 40k the dealership was bothering me to replace mine. I'd noticed some very slight performance decrease at that point, but had not seen any dashboard warnings. The rears were in worse shape than the fronts.

Next time, I think I'm just going to wait until the dashboard light comes on, because they recommend that you replace pads and rotors at the same time. There's no point in doing pads early to avoid rotor scoring...

How you drive has a big influence on how many miles you get from a set of brakes.

If you do a lot of open road highway driving the brakes will last a lot longer than if you spend all of your time in stop and go traffic.

My driving leans towards open road highway driving. Still on the original brakes that came with my 2019 at 49K miles so far.

This is something of a ballpark estimate. I'm aware of different driving styles. I'm mostly stop and go, in this heavy LA traffic.
