Does the job as expected

Appeared to be a quality product time will tell how long they will last, replaced rotors as well with coupon 30% off was a great deal.

These "lifetime" pads only last 30K on my MDX. When I took them back for a replacement, I was told that warranty was only for defects. Huh? Lifetime breaks at AutoZone means free replacement for the lifetime of the vehicle. They agreed to give me a "one-time" replacement. Guess I won't be buying brake pads (or anything else) at Advance Auto.

My first set was noisy from the get-go and didn't fit without a little sanding down as someone else mentioned. This set went in easy and is not noisy, so I'm hopeful that these will be better.

    Comments about Carquest Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads - Rear (4-Pad Set):

    For my Honda application, these pads match the OEM specs of FF friction code and Ceramic composition. They fit perfectly, not too tight or too loose. I would have liked to see the pad ears a little smoother where they ride in the clip tracks.

    As with any install, how long they last depends on proper installation. I check rotor parallelism and on-vehicle runout to be within factory specs. This only takes a few minutes and is mandatory in the Honda service manual, so of course mechanics skip those steps because it takes precious time. They just slap those pads on there and hope for the best!

        I always use the Wear Ever brand pads and rotors. This is the first I've had a problems. The good thing about it, I was able to exchange them for new ones. Under warranty.

              ...out of the box. Hard to get in, and when tried, had all kind of noise and brake drag on test drive. Took the pads to the bench grinder to grind the ears down on three sides and they finally fit in the groove, moved as the should, and the noise went away.

              Stopping appears good but only 2,000 miles on them.

                This was the first time I changed my own brake pads, so I have nothing to compare to except the difference in price. Figure I saved a few 100 dollars. It's been about a month, and no issues so far.

                  Installed the pads without any problems. They seem to provide good braking. Had semi-metallic as original equipment. Will see if these organic linings perform as well.

                        If not, you can re-use the ones from your old pads you are taking off. It's a universal part I believe (fits all pads that size / shape).
