I just recently replaced my pads on my 2009Base2.5L with 79k on the odometer. I took the car into the dealership for a recall and had them do a preliminary check. ( I had a feeling the pads needed to be replaced, but it wasn't hitting the wear sensors yet). Of course the dealership wanted to replace pads/rotors at $300 an axle. To which, I politely told them to stuff it. I do most of my own work but had a local (and honest mechanic) recheck them as I had him rebalance my tires. He told me just the pads were needed (no gouges/grooves int he rotors and the rotors were all in spec). I had him replace the rotors while it was onthe lift and have had no problems since..
@DenisWH: Exactly, new rotors are cheap relatively so turniing had really become a thing of the past.
