    Usually the fronts go before the rears do.

  3. You must have a V6 model with the traction control "feature." Before
    there was traction control, front brakes would always wear out before
    the rear. Now many drivers do not turn off the traction control. Those
    drivers usually wear out the rear brakes before the front. The wear
    rate depends on the driver's driving style and the terrain. There is
    no universal mileage range in which the brakes wear out, but few drivers
    wear out the brakes in the first 20,000 miles. After that one should
    check the brakes for wear periodicly, like once every three or four months.

    To clear things up. With 2001-2005, Honda alot thinner pads in the
    back. This is a know fact.
