Default Brakes and rotors on new F Pace

Why would my brakes and rotors on a brand new F pace need to be replaced at 14000 miles. I drive normally.

If rear thats about average for light brakers. The bias is more rear for light brakers to reduce front end dive. Heavier gets more front. I would ask where theyre at because i will recommend if theyre close so you dont leave and then a short time later the pad sensor comes on for the "what i just had it in for service work. Why didnt they just do them then?" complaint.
And normal usage is purely subjective to the driver. Followed my ex wife to work one morning and counted the number of times her brake lights came on. 35 times to my 3. I keep distance and take my foot off the gas and cover the brakes but dont use them unless i have to.
On your rotors they may or may not be below minimum thickness, and might be below before the second set of pads need to be replaced. while i use to replace pads only many times, I quit doing that for too many returns complaining about brake noise. You may just be able to do pads but thats your descision then.
