Depends on your driving style (aggressive), driving conditions(city/highway) and even transmission (standard/automatic).

Aggressive driving style will wear brakes faster. As will city driving (frequent stops & starts). A manual transmission can be used (gearing down) to reduce break wear since part of the breaking is done by the engine.

Brake pads have a wear sensor on them. You might want to check if it's well plugged in, since the pads couldn't have worn so fast. If it's not well plugged in, the computer might think your pads have worn.

My car only has sensors on front pads, but others have on all 4 pads. Check them all out!
