: How long will brake pads last?

I have a new Yukon Denali XL (which I LOVE) and am wondering what is the typical life of brake pads.I want to know when to start checking them.
The pad life of my pads will be lower than typical because my wife commutes to work 35 miles each way 5 days a week and on weekends I put 500 highway miles on it and I drive faster than most people.

Depends on where you live and how you drive, I have one 07' with 24k on it, was looking at the pads last week when I rotated the tires and they still have about half life on them
