  1. I've just been told that our car needs the rear brake pads replacing (90% worm) at 40k miles, so this is obviously a weakness in the design. We do have the hill start assist which will obviously have an effect on pad wear. Has anyone done this, and if so how easy is it. After 25 or so years of maintaining my own cars I begrudge paying £120 to a garage to do a job I could do for £25 (cost of pads) plus a few hours work like it used to be. But if it a whole weekends job for a DIY'er like me without special tools and knowledge, then I'll won;t bother. Any advice would be welcome. Cheers, Andy
