how about my 'fleet' if cars

 

my mums 2006/55 reg 1.6 petrol Focus saloon is at 50,000 miles. parts replaced, service items, front pads, 2x tyres, ignition coil (x2)

 

my uncles 2006/06 reg 1.6 petrol Focus hatchback is at 60,000 miles. parts (which i have) replaced. front pads, service items, bulbs.

 

my 2005/55 reg 1.1 Smart Forfour is at 102700 miles. parts replaced. service items, bulbs front discs (not pads), tyres, 1x rear hub bearing, alternator, valve shims

 

my grandads (formally my uncles) 2000/X reg 1.4 petrol Seat Leon is at 122,000 miles. parts replaced (to my knowledge), service items, tyres, clutch (covered under warranty), 2x cam belts 3x EGR valves (warranty), 1x ECU (warranty), 1x front disc and pads (replaced at 90k), 1x rear pads (replaced at about 110k), bulbs

 

and finally my uncles 2006/06 reg 2.2 diesel Honda Civic is at close to 170,000 miles, parts replaced. service items, tyres 1x front disc (replaced at 50,000), 2x front pads, 1x rear pads, 1x exhaust manifold (warranty).

 

and that is a combined mileage of 504,000 miles

Hold on, so your Forfour has managed 102,000 miles without wearing out brake pads? 

 

Secondly, why have both the Seat and the Honda had just one disc replaced?  I was always told you should replace both discs at the same time.

appologies. i have corrected the Seat and Honda. with the exceptions of the Seat and Civic which were bought brand new by my uncle, the others were bought 2nd hand.

 

the reason for replacing just the discs and not the pads on my forfour was that the discs had a fairly big lip on them when i bought it but the pads we about 25% worn, so in my eyes it made more sence to replace the discs and reuse the pads

Ah, I see!  I thought you'd owned it from new and the brake pads were still good after 102,000 miles - that would be a miracle!

My 2012 Fiesta 1.6 TDCi Econetic has 44.450 miles.  But probably counts as high considering it is only 16 months old!!
