I'm still on the original brakes of my Insight. Wondering if anyone has had to replace theirs yet, and when.

Well, I can't say for sure how the car was driven, but I bought a 2000 Insight with 33,000 miles on it a few weeks ago to toy around with and then sell. Well yesterday I was driving around a little bit in it with the windows down and I noticed the metallic squeal that means time for new brakes. I had become accustomed to waiting for parts for a day or two to get them from California so I called up my connection at the local honda dealership and had him order me a set all around. He said it should be monday by the time they get here. Ok, well today I got a call saying there is a national backorder on the brake pads! 6 weeks! This worries me.

Replaced pads at 57,000 miles as the discs were warped, pads were around 40% worn.

brake pads

On 04/01/04 with 99,000 miles on the odometer, I replaced the front pads and posted the results on the thread "turbocharged Insight".

I included the measurements of the pads at that time.
(page 9)

Replaced as a matter of precaution.

At 200,000 miles I will be doing a major overhaul in maintenance.
Oil, filter, air cleaner element, trans fluid, brake fluid, clutch fluid, front and rear brakes, and new tires. (Stay tuned)
