How often do you change brake pads ?

Mine is a 2009 with about 50K miles. I'm still running the stock pads, but I'm about ready for my second set of discs up front. Not wearing in thickness, of course, just too much washboard.

4 bulbs in 15,000 miles is pretty excessive. I never burnt out the stock bulb, but I've upgraded them twice.

I would take it back to the dealer and claim a warranty electrical issue.
