E320 1999 12000 miles on brake pads??

I guy I work with has just been told that his '99 E320 at 27000 miles needs new pads AGAIN. Only 12,000 miles since the first were put on. Also told his rotors are slightly under spec. He only got 17000 miles out of the factory Michelins on the car. No special undo treatment of the car - his wife's car and it's in Southern California mostly on freeways.

The MB tech told him that 10-15K miles is about right on a set of pads... I told him to find a new shop. Thoughts?
