- 2014 & 2019 CX-5 Touring(s)
This’s hardly a rule of thumb anymore nowadays. The rear brakes are worn out a lot faster due to the brake distribution system which is designed to use rear brakes a lot more for light braking, hence wear out sooner than the front. This’s also apply to our CX-5, based on all the reports here.
Yep. Personal experience... our 21014's rear brakes wore down to the backing plates and I only noticed after hearing the grinding sounds . Stupid me had only been checking the fronts for wear, based on the same assumption as @HardRightEdg has expoused, and fronts were fine.
