No more brake probs. The catalytic converters blew and took the MAF sensor too so that POS went to the scrap yard. Bought it new in 2005 and after 150,000 street kilometres she's done. First and last Nissan, I bought a real truck - FORD.

Aren't Fords the ones that have the spark plugs go shooting out of the head on their own or just break off when you try to remove them?

95,565 miles out of front pads & rotors

I can't believe it took me this long to actually vote on my own poll. 95,565 miles on the front pads and rotors, squeeler just starting to rub. Back pads are still ~50%. I pull a trailer and carry loads in the bed often, thought they'd be gone long ago. Went with EBC Ultimax 2 with Premium rotors. So far, pretty nice.

2007 SE CC 4X4 Red Brawn
Performance: BullyDog GT Platinum 40417; Gibson SS Catback; Amsoil Air Filter; Amsoil synthetics
Suspension: Old Man EMU 1.5" Front Coil / 2" Read AAL
Tires: Michelin LTX M/S^2 P265/70R16
Exterior: OEM Fog Lights added
Interior: Kenwood KDC-X597, Alpine SPS-609 6X9” front & SPS 17C2 6 ½” rear speakers; WeatherTech floor mats

I have went with OEM the entire life of my truck. Usually get 80,000 plus on them.
