Sounds to me like a faulty brake distribution valve ? This is located under the car near the rear axel and has a large spring attached to it. They do get stuck because they get gummed up with road crap. Might be worth a look at...

 Riding the brake pedal will also cause front brake wear as will binding callipers.. Unless the vehicle  is an Automatic, then the front brakes will take a bit more of a beating than a manual due to the lack of engine breaking..

 Were the break pads Original or pattern ? I find pattern brake parts don't last and quite often the pads are considerably more dusty.

134+k, I was been sarcastic :-) I wasn't sure if you'd miss-read the post,

 I don't use the brakes at all unless really necessary,she gets a check-up/service every 8k,same mechanic/garage and he knows his lingo's, it's brushed down and greased underneath if/when he reckons it needs it,this has to last as long possible. Ian

I thought I was good getting 60k plus out of my pads...

Anyway - I agree with the post title - terrible French piece of rubbish. Mines up past 70k now and I have to give it an oil change and wipe with an oily rag every year... It even demands a fresh tank of diesel most weeks. Ridiculous!
