What type of warning system does this car has to alert you of worn pads? On my other cars I usually use the fluid reservoir level as a guide.When it reaches the half point and the amount of brake dust on the wheels increases,I change the pads and normally they are pretty much worned out at that time.

Both front & rear pads have wear sensors that will turn on warning lamp!
