Hi guys I am thinking about buying a Suby but I heard the break pads are not soft and they eat away the break discs is this true? how frequent does the discs need changing any way? Thanks.

Between myself and my friends, I do the maintenance on 4 subes. 2 96 Impreza Outbacks, 1 '02 Forester and 1 06 Legacy.

All have used stock /OEM pads. The only car I've ever had to change a brake rotor on was my Impreza because a caliper slider locked up and the brakes stayed on full time, which warped it.

NO evidence of "pad eating."
