^ thats an easy one.

auto or manual no difference on brake squal

front brakes 60k rear 30k. rear brakes are usually smaller then front . reason is the front do the majority of the braking for the whole car.

The rears only supplement the front... however the reasons the rears wear out faster is due to traction control activating on the rear brakes.

brakes are working and wearing as designed... but the squal is due to poor design.
