Rear brakes wearing out fast

i have a 09 and just did a brake change on it because it was making noise. I did the front thinking they were bad but still had half of the pad left so I checked the rear and they were gone. I have never seen the rear go before the front. We took it to the dealer and they said its normal for these but couldnt see any wear since I just changed them. They said the E brake is a seperate brake from the regular brakes, I have never seen that nor did I see anything else to that when I had the tires off. Anyone else have this issue?

It's a very common occurance due to ESP.

Thanks for the info. You would think that if they know this will happen then they would put bigger pads on the back then.
