I've never replaced brake pads on any EV I've ever driven. I've had at least a half-dozen in twenty years, had them inspected with tire changes, and none of them ever needed it.What is the tolerance on brake pads as I wanted to pop off my tire today and measure how much pad was left. But at only 19,000 miles on our 2017 Bolt that we typically drive with regen I guess I should expect to find some healthy pads!!
I don't recommend relying on the manual for proper car maintenance. As I've said, my previous car would have died several times if I just followed the manual. I'll probably do the brake fluid in about 8 years and maybe the coolant and "transmission" fluid at the same time. I would expect it to last another 8 years which is probably the end-of-life for the car.Nope. RTFM.
