Hey,

What is the general life of brake pads on your car, mine is wearing out every 25k KMS+, I previously owned a Santro and never had to replace it over 80k life. Below is the schedule with my Sail Sedan.

1st replacement: 28k
2nd replacement: 48k

The car is currently at 58k on the ODO.

Thanks
GE.

73,000 kms is when I replaced the brake pads.
I would like to add that I don't encounter a lot of traffic in my route and rarely use the brakes. I rely on only engine braking for shedding speed.

BBLost's Chevrolet Sail UVA: 85,000 kms. Sailing On.-apt.jpg

Needed a new set of wipers for the car.

Took it to the new Chevrolet Authorized Service center, which is also an independent garage.

It is a decent place with a lot of workers in it.
I will mostly go back to them next week to replace my clutch cable as its gone a little hard.
Car has crossed 80,000 kms and feels like its good for another 40,000 at the very least.

With Covid19 playing havoc with all plans my car service had gotten seriously delayed.

So took her to the Authorized center after more than 2 years and 12,000 kilometers.
Waited in the lobby for the car to be serviced.

Car is fine and there was an ECM update as well.
No issues. Just needed fresh oils.

Car is now at 85,000 kilometers.
