longevity of disk brakes

I've had my jeep liberty for a year and travelled 20 000 miles.
It has front disk brakes and rear drum brakes - however I now have to have the front disk brakes repleced or at the very least machined due to wear.
I don't think I am an aggressive driver - (although my girlfriend may somtimes disagree), and I am not towing anything with it.
The only thing I can think of is that I have done some sand and beach driving.
Would appreciate feedback from others as to the longevity of your brakes.

disc brakes

I have a 2003 Liberty, disc front and rear, and the rear discs got "grooved" as the dealer put it after only 5.000 miles of highway driving. I might not have noticed any problem,except they were groaning and squealing upon application at low speeds. Admitingly, there was gravel on the highway for traction during the winter, but damn.....rear disc resurfacing after only 5000 miles??????? I'm hoping this isnt a yearly occurrence.

front disc brakes

HAVE A 2002 JEEP LIBERTY I JUST CHANGED THE FRONT DISC BRAKES AT 17.500 MILES,AND PADS WER JUST ABOUT TO WEAR THRU.THE OLD PADS(original) DID NOT HAVE ANY WEAR DETECTORS(THEY EMIT A SQUEAL WHEN THEY NEED CHANGED)BUT THE NEW MOPAR PADS I INSTALLED DID. ALSO THESE DISC BRAKES WERE THE EASIEST TO INSTALL THAN ANY I HAVE EVER DONE.

I remplaced my original front pads at 14000 Km, but I think is normal because I live in hills area and the my wife´s 4Runner brake has the same behavior.

I was very angry because the original pads don´t have a wear detectors and the right pad scratch my disk

Now I will be cheking my pads to remplace it before this happen again, is very easy change it, 20 minutes
