    Uneven wear of breakpads? '19 Signature

    Took my car in today to get its 28,000km service done, and they reported the front pads were at 11mm and the rears at 7mm. that struck me as being odd, as I figured the front brakes would be utilized heavier than the rear brakes? Does this seem odd to anyone else at all? Thanks!
