How often should one have to replace brake pads in an S2000?

Asked by Jan 07, 2016 at 10:48 AM about the 2005 Honda S2000 Roadster

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

In the first 8 years of ownership, it didn't seem as if I had to change brake
pads that often, but in the last 3 years, it seems like every 12,000 miles
we have been told we have to do it. They are worn. I know how to drive
this car and wonder if my dealer isn't t taking advantage of me as each
time they change the pads, they change the rotors. We went 30,000 miles
before we were told brakes were 50%  down. Now we are told that 12,000
miles is the normal life span of a brake pad. Can this be? I am not heavy
on the brakes.
