On the acadia forum- more older lambdas there-- and I think it ranges from 30K to 60K.
But I really hope to get 60-70K.
(Im basing this on my 03 Trailblazer- getting 77,000 on the front pads- and at 154,000- I still have factory rear pads).
My Traverse is driven in the same conditions that the Trailblazer was--- the only difference is the Traverse is FWD--- so I suspect that my diminish pad life a bit.

Because the front drive is pulling the vehicle and the majority of the weight of the vehicle, the tires will wear out quicker on the front end. They also do all the steering and side to side movement when turning the steering wheel. Because of the way brake systems are designed, the front brakes will also wear out quicker than the rears.
I have done the front brakes on my truck three times, and am still running the factory pads on the rear. The truck is rear wheel drive with 130000 miles!

Just got my Traverse back from the dealer (09/LS/FWD/27,000 miles) to have the front rotors replaced and the rear rotors resurfaced, all covered under warranty. The service writer said the pads both in front and rear looked good and would probably last 50-60,000 miles. Unfortunately GM does not put enough nickel in their rotors for people like me here in Buffalo, NY whose cars are subjected to a lot of road salt in the winter time. This causes rust and rotor warping. The brakes feel a little squishy now. Anyone else have the same feeling?
